The Asia Pacific Forum on Women, Law, and Development (APWLD) has called for a Global Week of Action against Gov’t Crackdown on Cambodian Protesters from January 10-17:

While the New Year’s firecrackers signaled hope for people around the world, Cambodian garment workers protesting for a rise in wages faced a violent police crackdown on January 2, 2014. Two days later, Freedom Park in Phnom Penh, where civil society have traditionally gathered, was forcibly cleared by police and mass actions are now banned from the site.

Many groups from all around the world rallied in solidarity:
