The need to protect the land of the ethnic minorities
The problem of evictions and concessions on ancestral ethnic minorities is the biggest threat to their cultural identity and own sustainability. Buying or removing them from their land means to condemn the people to poverty and to destroy an ancestral culture that must be a part of our proud as a nation. In this case it is also important to protect the language. To my opinion, the language is the most important cultural mark of identity. In many other parts of the world, many ancestral peoples have been declared as extinct only because their language was alienated. In the middle of it, education is a vital to learn the young about their own culture and their role to ensure a better future for their own people inside the Cambodian nation.
