Borei Keila

A community activist cries during a protest staged by Borei Keila residents. Despite years of protesting, many families have yet to receive adequate compensation from Phanimex. The community of Borei Keila in Phnom Penh was once home to hundreds of families before land developer Phanimex bought the property rights to the area and forcefully evicted the residents who refused to accept their compensation package. Those who remained were forced to squat in the remains of the buildings, living in slum-like conditions and without access to plumbing or public electiricity.
