Where it all started
Khmer Rouge was an military revolt group that wanted to take over the Cambodian government. The Cambodian communist group was made of peasants, the homeless, and orphaned boys. They started a guerrilla war against the Cambodian government. Giving up, prince Shinauk joined forces with Pol Pot. They then forced peasants and citizens to move to the farmland of Cambodia and harvest for Khmer Rouge. They workers were not aloud to eat what they harvested. They starved and most died, if they weren't killed. "What was rotten was removed" says the Khmer Rouge boys.
