Cambodia Case 002: Facing Genocide
I’m really hoping not to be working next Monday. There is a Q&A and screening at London’s Wolfson Theatre. The website describes it as such:
The Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia is preparing for Case 002, the trial of the four most senior surviving leaders of the Khmer Rouge during the Democratic Kampuchea regime. This event will include a screening of a unique documentary film investigating the life of one of the four former leaders shortly to be on trial. It will also provide a rare opportunity to hear directly from one of the foremost campaigners for memory, truth and accountability in Cambodia.
I’m going to try and go. It will be valuable information as I might be heading over to Cambodia during my travels. Although I am heading to Asia without even a skeleton of a trip I think going over there oblivious to a country’s political situation and its history isn’t very cool. You can’t ask smart questions if you aren’t informed, eh? So fingers crossed I’ve got Monday night off!
