Phnom Penh, Cambodia, November 26, 2010 --( The celebrations will be taking place in the capital and all around the country on 10th December 2010 with parades through the streets and brightly coloured banners are set to line the boulevards displaying messages of the need for equal human rights for everyone. Some temples in the city are also set to include open air festivities mixed with ceremonies to pray for those people that face inequality.

Previous years of the national holiday have seen demonstrations from protest groups and societies campaigning for people that are being mistreated. Many organisations are increasingly protesting against the rising abuse against locals and want to see a change in the handling of local matters.

Examples include the increasing numbers of people being illegally evicted from their homes as the country is witnessing a strong growth in property development. Figures from Amnesty International in 2008 showed that approximately 150,000 Cambodians were fearful of being evicted from their homes.
