Hundreds of military police officers carrying riot shields and four fire trucks blocked a road to prevent about 2,000 striking garment workers from marching to Prime Min*ister Hun Sen’s house near In*dependence Monument on Friday morning. The workers—from Singaporean-owned SL Garment Factory, which supplies the Gap—have been striking for more than a month to de*mand food stipends, the reinstatement of fired union leaders and that one of the factory’s managers be fired.
