The Grand Theft of Dey Krahorm

The Grand Theft of Dey Krahorm, one of chapters in a Land Research Action Network publication on Land Struggles, tells the story of Dey Krahorm’s vital struggle to keep their community intact and the immense campaign to prevent the grand theft of their land. In 2003, the Cambodian government announced that 100 inner-city poor communities would be provided with secure land tenure and full basic services. Dey Krahorm, in Phnom Penh, was to be among the first. However, the land was subsequently stolen from the local residents by a private company, in collusion with a handful of leaders. Six years later, the community has now been forcefully evicted from their homes, with the aid of police and other armed government forces.
