Phnom Penh, Cambodia - Factory workers, Buddhist monks, and people dissatisfied with the current government staged mass demonstrations throughout the capital, Phnom Penh.

The protests started as a series of rallies by garment workers who want the minimum wage raised to $160 a month from $95. But the demonstrators have been joined by members of the country's opposition and many are now calling on Prime Minister Hun Sen to resign. 

"Hun Sen and his illegal government can hear us, they can't ignore us, the people show their will for change," Sam Rainsy, leader of the main opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party, told the rally in a Phnom Penh park on Sunday.

Sen's long-dominant Cambodian People's Party won a July election but with a reduced majority. It has rejected opposition complaints of vote-rigging.

Sen, who has been in power for 28 years, says that he will not resign or call a new vote.
