Birds of a Feather

Vietnam and Cambodia have a lot more in common than both being Southeast Asian countries. The governments of both countries are punishing those who exercise their rights to speak out peacefully against human rights violations. Take a look here and here.

It takes courage to stand up against governments that are consistently hurting rather than helping their citizens. Cambodia’s government would rather evict poor persons from their homes only to relocate them somewhere worse off or imprison anyone who dare defend the rights of those who have no voice. Vietnam’s government has acted in a way that shows it would rather sentence critics to prison rather than defend human rights.

Rather than addressing citizens’ cries for justice and freedom, the governments have chosen to oppress their respective peoples. Vietnam’s and Cambodia’s governments’ actions clearly show that they would rather support harsh responses instead of constructive ones.
