Khmerization received the following appeal from a fellow Khmer Surin, whom I think is more Khmer than some of us. He is doing it tough trying to teach Khmer language to our Khmer Surin children due to shortage of money and teachers. Above all, he is a scholar who is well-versed in Khmer and Thai history. If anyone has any doubt about Preah Vihear and the 1907 treaty, ask him.
The following is his appeal for financial help in his crusade to revive Khmer language in Surin. Please give a helping hand so that our Khmer Surin brothers and sisters can help keep their Khmer identity.Read more about Lok Kru Chey Mongkol crusade click here: Khmer Surin: Will They Survive The Language And Cultural Genocide?
I am sending you a MAYDAY!! Now, we having a big problem with financial crisis. For months that I don’t receive donaiton. Please send my cry for help to all Khmer who see my cause.
This is a new front line for the Khmer people. If I lost in Surin, history of the Khmer Surin will be completely wiped out. Now, Thai government’s Mahidol University has started up Khmer program for Khmer Surin but they use Thai scripts written Khmer words. My program is a rival program for them. They don’t like me because I have often attacked them whenever we go out for a conference.
Please send this message to all Khmer people that I need their help at Surin Front Line. This is gonna be a long long uphill battle.
