Vital Voices: Tep Vanny
English Subtitles • 3m 18s
Anyone who has worked in a developing country in the last decade will have heard a similar story. Developers seize a valuable piece of land, throw the existing community out, and after protests ebb away, a new development arises: apartments, a mall, restaurants and stores for the newly wealthy. The people of Boeung Kak Lake, Cambodia have tried to rewrite the script. With Tep Vanny, a dedicated and energetic young woman as one of their spokespeople, they challenged the developer and the Cambodian government, and they have refused to go quietly.
