City Hall Bans Celebratory Women’s Day Bike Ride
Chhorn Sokha of the Center for Alliance of Labor and Human Rights (CENTRAL) said yesterday that the actions of City Hall and local authorities within Meanchey district banning people from riding bicycles in celebration of Women’s Day was unacceptable. About 70 percent of the participants, she said, were women.
“We celebrate this day by riding bicycles in order to get some exercise, cut down the pollution in the city and to promote a money-saving means of travel as well. If we look at the existing laws, we will see there is no law banning people from riding bicycles to show their support of Women’s Day,” Ms. Sokha said.
