CPN and its affiliate CYN, as well as PLCN and Friends of the Forest, held a Prey Lang Community Network Reflection meeting on April 6-7 in Kampong Thom with 51 (16 women) PLCN representatives and members from all four Prey Lang provinces. The meeting focused on past activities such as the Prey Lang Festival, but also addressed forest patrols, documentation filing, report writing, and the keeping of meeting minutes. Eight PLCN representatives from the four provinces were appointed to manage and file required documentation. PLCN also reported on cooperation between the community and local authorities. The network is planning a large event in May in Kratie with some 1,600 participants to protest forest clearing carried out by Think Biotech. PLCN will also organize protests in June aimed at the C.R.C.K. rubber company.
