Cambodian garment workers protesting for a rise in wages faced a violent police crackdown on January 2, 2014. Subsequent arrests and violence at an industrial park mark an escalation of repression on workers simply asking for a fair living wage. Asia Pacific Forum on Women, Law and Development joins organisations from the region calling on international civil society to hold a Global Week of Action starting Friday, 10 January 2014. Friday will be a day of protest against state repression of workers, protection for workers’ right to freedom of assembly, and right to a living wage.
