Cambodia Fights Against US Meddling: Arrests US-Backed “Union Leader”

August 31, 2021 (The New Atlas) – The US policy of encircling and containing China spares no nation in Southeast Asia. Cambodia is also being targeted, though Cambodia has arrested or driven out the US-backed opposition party of choice – the Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) – which now resides in Washington D.C.

There are still US-backed agitators operating in Cambodia, like supposed “labor leader” Rong Chhun whose arrest is being portrayed by the Western media as persecution and oppression – leaving out essential context including his US backing and his role in aiding the CNRP.
