    Descriptive info: Alert Detail.. More use of unlawful force by Cambodian authorities on peaceful protesters.. Date Issue.. 2013-09-23.. Nature of violation.. Rights involved.. Brief Description.. Members of the communities of Boeung Kak and Borei Keila held a peaceful hunger strike yesterday at Wat Phnom pagoda in the north of Phnom Penh, to protest the opening of the National Assembly today despite the absence of opposition parliamentarians.. Between around.. 9 and 10pm.. last night, as the hunger strikers were allegedly about to pack up and return home, they were set upon by a mixed group of security forces including riot police and a group of around 20-30 plain clothed civilians who appeared to be working for the police.. The mixed security forces proceeded to attack the peaceful hunger strikers using sticks, electric batons and slingshots.. The hunger strikers began their peaceful demonstration at Wat Phnom at around.. 2pm.. yesterday and included a group of around 50 Boeung Kak  ...   injured in the violent crackdown including journalists, human rights observers, who were chased from the scene using sticks, electric batons and slingshots, and the peaceful demonstrators themselves.. One human rights observer, who attempted to help one of the community members who was being chased from the scene, had his back car window smashed in by military police in retaliation.. The harsh reaction of the authorities to this entirely calm and peaceful protest was not only unnecessary, illegitimate, undemocratic and illegal but it was also inexplicable.. The Cambodian authorities have clearly not learned from past mistakes, including the shooting dead of civilian Mao Sok Chan last Sunday night after military police opened fire on crowds following an opposition protest that was held earlier in the day..
