The Khmers Kampuchea-Krom Federation (KKF) is a peaceful organization representing millions of voiceless Khmer-Krom people living in the Mekong Delta and its surrounding regions of current day Vietnam as well as thousands living in exile.
KKF is a global organization ran by volunteers from around the world. Its human rights advocated activities are funded by donations from Khmer-Krom communities and the sympathizers across the continents.
From KKF President Happy New Year Year of the Rat 2552 Best wish to all beloved compatriots Year of the Rat is another joyful time for us to celebrate the New Year. The aspiration of this celebration is to celebrate and bring in good luck, good health to ourselves and our love one as well as our beloved country. With this opportunity, I would like to wish everyone inside and outside of our motherland a happy and peaceful New Year. My greatest hope is that I wish Khmer Krom will soon be recognized by world as a nation especial in our own homeland. Moreover, I wish that our non-violence struggle for peace, for human rights, and for our right as an indigenous people continue to be recognized and success. Also, you may wish for your family happiness, and for your personal life as one of the sophisticated owner of the house. Don’t permit yourself to live with life under the pressure and the colonization of Vietnam communist. After the New Year, we will continue our ‘Road Map to the Motherland’ goal that is organized by the Khmer Kampuchea-Krom Federation (KKF) to ask for the right as the indigenous people of the land. We will preserve the goal of our ancestors and for the compatriots who are the victim of Vietnamese communist in one voice. One voice is a great strength that will lead us to the victory in the struggle of freedom. Our race is in danger, our blood is turning into a great river, the tremble of fear our people face every second under the pressure of Vietnamese communist. Taking this opportunity, Vietnam poisons our people conscientiousness to walk passes the virtue of Buddha teaching. Negligence, fraudulent, and use Khmer as their enemy to open the ways for Vietnamese people ravage as they pleased. The past few years, Khmer Krom has taken the international law as the road to the struggle for freedom in the name of indigenous people of the land. Although we face many obstacles along the road internationally; but those obstacle did not compare to the obstacle living under the Vietnam rule and the lost of our heritage and our territory. KKF have brought up Khmer Krom suffering and dug up Vietnam poisonous political secrets and revealed to the international in the hope that Khmer Krom people will soon see the light and headed towards a brighter future. We will always continue the fight for our Rights as a human being and stand up for ourselves from being wipeout from our own land. In the quest for the Human Rights, many Khmer Krom citizens have sacrificed their lives, their time mentally and financially to help to make this struggle possible. And currently, many, including Respectable Venerables back home are still imprisoned in standing up for their rights. We pray to all compatriots and wish all many happiness in this coming New Year and also please accept our sincere thanks. May Peace and Happiness be upon you and your loved ones and may the New Year Angelas fulfill us with the strength to fight for our freedom and to self determinate as our ancestor have wished for the generation beyond. Please accept my sincere thanks from me. Thach Ngoc Thach
