GWANGJU, July 26 (Yonhap) -- Thousands of Cambodian migrant workers and housewives will stage a rally in the South Korean city of Gwangju later this week for the democratization of their homeland, organizers said Thursday.
"A candlelight gathering for Cambodia's democratization will be held at the May 18 Democracy Plaza in Gwangju from 5:00 p.m., Saturday," they said.
Some 5,000 Cambodians residing in the country are expected to join the vigil to call for the resignation of Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen, who has been ruling the country for 33 years, they said.
On Sunday, the participants will hold a street parade, they added.
