The Tenth Session of the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues (UNPFII) will start from May 16-27, 2011. As previous years, the Khmer-Krom Youths from around the world will travel to New York City to attend the UNPFII. Some of them already arrived at the United States. They all come to the UNPFII with a mission, not a vacation, to help bringing the truth about the human rights violations against their voiceless Khmer-Krom in Kampuchea-Krom.
