Cambodians clash with cops over land grabs

Like China, there are repeated clashes between authorities and the population over the government's seizure of land for developers. There is undoubtedly an increased global struggle against capitalist globalization and all its by products, from the factories of Bangladesh, to the indigenous communities of Latin America and here we see it in Cambodia. The US mass media, more than the mass media of any other industrialized nation does a very good job of keeping the news simple, provincial and demoralizingly mind numbing. The Kardashians, sports, murders etc.
