Cambodia bars green activists from traveling to accept international award

A Cambodian court has denied the request of three activists from environmental group Mother Nature Cambodia to travel to Sweden to receive the Right Livelihood Award, also known as the "Alternative Nobel." The activists were recognized for their environmental activism but were on parole for charges related to their activities, leading to the travel request denial. Mother Nature Cambodia accused the court of being politically influenced due to the prosecutor's known association with the ruling Cambodian People's Party. The Right Livelihood organization pledged to stand in solidarity with the activists and called on the Cambodian government to reconsider its decision.

                It is disappointing to see Cambodia preventing green activists from accepting an international award, as it sends a negative message about the country's commitment to environmental protection. It is important to support and recognize individuals who are making positive contributions towards sustainability, rather than hindering their efforts.

                  Actions that tend to intimidate climate heroes are not acceptable
