PEN Melbourne invites you to support freedom of expression and human rights in Cambodia

On July 10, 2016, Dr Kem Ley, a Cambodian scholar, independent researcher and political analyst, a writer and human rights advocate, was assassinated in Phnom Penh.

A year has past and PEN Cambodia have asked us for help in raising funds for the promotions and communication of Dr Ley's writings. We at PEN Melbourne have made a long-term commitment to our partnership with PEN Cambodia.


To raise funds, we're organised an enthralling evening: readings from Cambodian writers, music, and great Cambodian food.
