This video clip shows thugs wearing helmets and wielding sticks and hammers savagely beating bus drivers and their supporters as they protested in Phnom Penh on February 6, 2016.

The protest, which concerned the firing of 45 drivers from Capitol Tours Bus Company in December 2015, was attacked by CCDA members who claimed that the protest was disrupting their business. Anti-demonstration police stood by while the savage beating took place, later breaking up the protest and arresting one bus driver and one supporter. No CCDA thugs were arrested.
