Fleeing Cambodian workers facing uncertain future

In another case of migrant workers getting caught in political problems in their host country, over 200,000Cambodian migrant workers ran away from Thailand fearing arrest and persecution following the military coup in Thailand. Many have come back to situations of poverty and facing a very hostile workplace climate. Earlier this year, the Cambodian government viciously attacked striking garment workers while at the workplace. Discrimination against workers and unionists is common, see here and here.
