UNPO releases the first of a series of newsletters dedicated to the plight of the Khmer-Krom

Have you ever heard of the Khmer-Krom people living both in Vietnam and in various diasporas around the world?

Were you aware that the Vietnamese government has been enforcing assimilation policies in schools with the purpose of acculturating Khmer-Krom children?

Did you know that today many Buddhist monks are persecutedby the government of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam for their religious beliefs?

As the world cannot keep overlooking the grave human rights abuses committed against minorities and indigenous peoples, the Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization (UNPO) has decided to launch a series of newsletters focusing on the Khmer-Krom. This campaign’s purpose is to raise awareness about the plight of the Khmer-Krom people, whilst taking a stand against all forms of exclusion.

Download the September-October 2018 edition of the UNPO Khmer-Krom Newsletter here and follow the campaign on social media with the hashtag: #KhmerKromTuesday.
