After the meeting between Mrs Clinton and Mu sochua in Washington speaking about humain right by criticizing the strong man of Cambodia, I congratulate the United States of this concern. As citizens Khmer, I ask in the United States of America to be attentive to the safety of Mu Soc Hua in her return in the country.

Thanks

Mrs.Mu Sochua is a HEROINE!

She is RESPECTED amongst so many Cambodians living here in America; she definately speaks for the people(especially the ones who dont have the courage to standup-she risks and stands up for all of us).

She has INSPIRED me soo much. I'm only eighteen years old, but I have been following Cambodian Government & Politics since I was fifteen (When i went to visit my family in the country and having a realization of it's third world state.)

She is only one of a very VERY few women that is brave enough to stand up to someone as powerful as Prime Minister Hun Sen; If she goes back to Cambodia with the threat of being jailed, physically scarred, or any other inhumane act that she is fighting against, what other hope do we have? And to be honost, i would be apprehensive of whether or not to follow in her footsteps, and once again, Cambodia's corrupt government wins.

Dear Secretary of State Clinton:

Thank you for meeting with Sochua to hear about the situation in Cambodia and the need for rule of law and anti-corruption, anti-slavery policies.

I am an attorney worked with Sochua state side during her charging and trial. I served on the Board of the Somaly mam Foundation and my work centered on upgrading rehabilitiation facilities for girls who have been rescued from slavery.

The U.S. has many opportunities to improve the outcomes from the support that we provide to Cambodia and to end the flow of pedophile tourism and child trafficking.

I hope that this meeting is the beginning of a healthy, long term strategy between Cambodia and the U.S. and that it strengthens emerging women leaders around the world.

Thank you for your service and for beginning this conversation.

Sincerely,

Beth K., Human Rights Attorney

I support MP Mu Sochua. As a second generation Cambodian-American living in USA-I must say that there are no women who would stand up for her rights and moreover, stand up against Hun Sen. After meeting and knowing MP Mu Sochua, she has inspired me even more. She is truly a role model for all Cambodian women, and more importantly, she is very traditional. Thanks MP Mu Sochua for all you do!!!

Thank you very much, Sec. Clinton, for meeting with and supporting Mu Sochua. I hope that you will do your best to continue to make clear to the Cambodian government that any harassment, imprisonment or other harm imposed on her will have the most serious consequences in terms of U.S. aid, security cooperation and overall relations with Cambodia.

Cambodia is not a nuclear threat and does not occupy much news print space or television coverage, but issues of human rights and a dysfunctional democracy that Mu Sochua is trying to change are worthy of our attention. Please help Mu Sochua so that the Khmer people will not continue suffering as they did under the Khmer Rouge in the 1970s and 1980s.

I would like to compliment Mu Sochu, who was known to me in 1975 when she was a graduate student at Berkeley, UC and thus escaped the wrath of the Kmer Rouge. Since returning to Cambodia, she has played a couragous role in promoting democracy and freedom in her home country.

Secretary of State Clinton:

Thank you for meeting with Sochua to hear about the situation in Cambodia and the need for rule of law and anti-corruption.

I am a politician myself and was in Cambodia meeting Sochua in January. It was a meeting that made a deep impression on me. It was frigthening to hear and learn about the situation in her country.

I appreciate your support of Sochoa, a courageous voice for democracy in Cambodia.

Please send a high level delegation to assess the situation of human rights in Cambodia

Please add your voices to the cause for Human Rights in Cambodia. Sochua is a courageous woman who has taken on this cause over the years and she deserves all of our support in her efforts. Many innocent lives are in peril without the consideration for basic human values and rights.

Mu Sochua who is engaged in the dangerous enterprise of resisting the evil government and brutal abuses deserves help.

If Hilary makes a statement that good should triumph over evil and justice will prevail, then an example will have been set for the world.

America and the world will not benefit from an evil regime.

Every aspect of official life in Cambodia is corrupt, from the courts to the central government to the police, health care, education. Conditions such as rampant poverty, official corruption, AIDS, lack of education, lack of health care, endemic lack of respect for human rights and the rule of law, will yield a situation where yet another international "rogue" regime is created, anti-American and a threat to the world.

If not the U.S., who will help Cambodians fight this uphill battle? China? Vietnam? Get real. This is a golden opportunity for us to spread American influence by fighting for freedom, HR, and women equality.

I am writing to express my heartfelt thanks to Secretary Clinton for meeting with Mu Sochua at this time. There is no one more deserving of your attention. Mu Sochua is a strong, tireless, devoted warrior for peace and if she is not protected then none of us with similar ideals are. I fully support her constant message advocating for the need to improve human rights records, a halt to land evictions, and the release of political prisoners. So, thank you Madame Secretary and I hope you will continue to ensure the safety of Mu Sochua as she returns to Cambodia.
