"Marching Towards National Salvation for Jan. 7" is the title of the documentary video on the sacrifice of Prime Minister Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen for the country's liberation from the Khmer Rouge's genocide.
This video clip was released this afternoon on the Cambodian Premier's official Facebook page at "https://www.facebook.com/hunsencambodia/videos/1374557716002920/".
This morning, Samdech Techo Hun Sen posted a Facebook message to mark the 42nd anniversary of his first decision to liberate Cambodian people from the genocide regime of Khmer Rouge.
"Today, June 20, 2019, is the 42nd anniversary of the day that I decided with pain to use my life to invest in the struggle to rescue the Cambodian people from the Pol Pot genocide regime (June 20, 1977-June 2019)," he wrote.
On June 20, 1977, Samdech Techo Hun Sen, along with four comrades, fled Cambodia to Vietnam through Tonloung commune, Memut district, Kampong Cham province (currently Thbong Khmum province), to form a movement to liberate Cambodia and its people. In 1978, Samdech Techo Hun Sen became a founding member of the United Front for the National Salvation of Kampuchea (UFNSK).
In collaboration with other patriotic movements and with the support of Vietnamese volunteer forces, on Jan. 7, 1979, the UFNSK rescued Cambodia and its people from the genocidal regime of Democratic Kampuchea.
