Rice plots blocked at dam site
Tue, 10 September 2013
In a first step toward clearing villagers from land intended for a planned Koh Kong provincial hydroelectric dam, a Chinese development firm has blocked a road leading to plots where villagers have continued to harvest rice.
Officials from Tianjin Union Development Group, which was awarded a 9,100-hectare economic land concession straddling Koh Kongâ€™s Kiri Sakor and Botum Sakor districts two years ago, placed wooden blocks across the Ta Noun commune road on Sunday, said Phan Eng, 57, who lives in the commune.
â€œWe can get across by jumping, but this makes it difficult to bring our tractors across to farm as we usually do,â€ Eng said.
