Presentation Transcript

  1. Communism • A political ideology and economic system, developed by Karl Marx (1818-83), in which people share equally the ownership of their society’s resources, contribute to its work according to their abilities and are provided for according to their needs. • Main ideas include: • Abolition of private ownership of poverty • Government control of the nations resources • The elimination of classes

  2. The Khmer Rouge • The Communist Party of Kampuchea (CPK), otherwise known as the Khmer Rouge, took control of Cambodia on April 17, 1975. The CPK created the state of Democratic Kampuchea in 1976 and ruled the country until January 1979. The party's existence was kept secret until 1977, and no one outside the CPK knew who its leaders were (the leaders called themselves "AngkarPadevat"). www.cambodiatribunal.org

  3. While the Khmer Rouge was in power, they set up policies that disregarded human life and produced repression and massacres on a massive scale. They turned the country into a huge detention centre, which later became a graveyard for nearly two million people, including their own members and even some senior leaders. www.cambodiatribunal.org
