I was deeply saddened to read the article by Anne Elizabeth Moore
titled “What’s
the Price of Workers’ Lives in
 published on January 17 in the US-based Truth-out.org website. This story
contained an outrageous attack on the Cambodian garment workers
demonstration over the minimum wage by a well-known Cambodian blogger,
academic and human rights activist Ms Sopheap Chak.
