Why I cannot vote from abroad?
This song is a great patriotic and historic narration for all Cambodians to watch. We, the CEROCERS, are promoting civic participation and democracy through voting. This song reminds us greatly on accomplishing our task to protect our interests.
Eastern and Western neighbors have relentlessly encroached this great empire. As an evidence, it has become tinier and tinier in both physical space and mental sphere, but our Khmer compatriots have relentlessly claimed back our legitimacy through long life learning and endurance.
The author picked on the tears of Naga serpents and Apsaras as an inspiring philosophy to wake up all Khmer compatriots.
This song significantly reminds us as Cambodians overseas who have never forgotten our root and we must work hard to protect this root. Among those efforts, our demanding for the Right to Vote in Cambodia elections is our urgent agenda. – CEROC
