Cambodia Youth Rising Up Against Corruption

Part of the war cycle is the shift in generations. We are seeing the younger generation rise up against the older in the context of civil unrest. This was the driving force in the Arab Spring. Even in Iran it was the youth rebelling against the strict religion. We are also seeing this same trend in Cambodia. The Hun Sen’s 29-year regime is tottering as a young population, angered by land grabs, corruption and low wages, demands change. We will see this rising to the surface in Europe and in the USA, kids are being oppressed by student loans and their education is proving worthless. More than 60% of the graduates today cannot find a job in the filed of their study. So now even the trend against corruption is erupting in Cambodia.
