We, the ATNC Monitoring Network and the undersigned organizations and trade unions from Hong Kong and from other Asian countries, are deeply moved by the brave actions taken by the garment workers and CCAWDU since September. We are impressed to see more than 200,000 garment workers taking part in the strikes in September to protest against the shameful rise of USD5 in the minimum wage negotiation reviewed since 4 years ago. The strike is probably the biggest in the industrial history of Cambodia.

It was more like a fad, something everyone professed to believe because that was what the in-crowd was saying.
