Every aspect of their lives was determined by the government and conditions were extremely harsh. When the Khmer Rouge was put down by Vietnamese forces, Pol Pot continued to use guerilla warfare tactics against the new Cambodian government but failed.

THE STONEWALL RIOTS The Stonewall riots are widely believed to be the single most important event leading to the gay liberation movement and the modern fight for LGBT rights in the United States. Considered by some to be the "Rosa Parks" moment of the gay rights movement in America, the riots were a series of spontaneous, violent demonstrations against a police raid of the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village, New York, in the early hours of June 28th, 1969. This single event has left a resounding impact on the fight for LGBT rights that can still be seen today. Throughout the 50s and 60s in the United States, the FBI along with local police departments kept close watch on what they believed to be "homosexual activity".
This is where all the Cambodian’s who could not work ended up being killed and left there when they could not work anymore. As soon as the Khmer Rouge came into power, they abolished anything related to the Khmer Culture. The local building in Phnom Penh turned into prisons or camps to hold the people of Cambodia. The money and the styles of clothing also spontaneously changed during Pol Pot’s reign. In addition, the genocide ended after the fall of the Khmer Rouge.
Cambodians grew suspicion towards Lon Nol’s government politics and opposed such a force. By 1975, Pol Pot’s force had grown to over 700,000 men. During 1975, Lon Nol’s government was officially defeated by the Khmer Rouge, causing the death of 156,000 Cambodian citizens. The reign of a brutal and murderous society had begun. Under Pol Pot’s leadership, an extreme programme was imposed to revolutionise Cambodia into a communist country, where all citizens were expected to work as labourers, farmers and peasants in one huge federation of farms in accordance to the Chinese agricultural model.
The Cambodian Genocide took a toll on many and affected their physical, mental and emotional well-being. Throughout the genocide, the Khmer Rouge transported people to camps, deprived them of all of their possessions, starved them so they could barely work, separated them from their families resulting in relationships being torn apart, and forced them to conceal their past just so they can stay alive. This was the case with Luong Ung and her family. They went from being a wealthy family that was very tight-knit to each other to having most of them be killed and have no food or clothes. In the novel First They Killed My Father, Luong Ung portrays Pa as a generous and lovable man before the Cambodian genocide, but during the Cambodian genocide, Pa is drastically changed into a stern and isolated person.
The revolution started at Stonewall in 1969 in resulted in the death of many of the protesters. Ever since the fight has been a slow struggle for equality.

In Sinclair’s novel “The Jungle”, the pressures of success and the flaws of capitalism causes the general society to devalue the human qualities as the repetitive labor transforms the employees into mere disposable parts of a machinery. The workers are evidently reduced by their circumstances, which they have no other choice as a result of overwhelming forces of capitalism. For example, “the time limit that a man could work in the chilling rooms was said to be five years.” (Sinclair) This depicts how just like the animals who are slaughtered daily at the plantations, the employees were being slaughtered ruthlessly and were grinded down by the system of capitalism, as if they were expendable resource. The symbolism of the animals in the novel largely relate to the attributes of naturalistic writers to reflect the darker, and the pessimistic sides of the world and apply the naturalism theory that all men are subject to an invisible hand – which in this case would be the drive for wages and urban life caused by the rise of capitalism. Furthermore, in Jack London’s “To Build A Fire”, the symbolism of his hands serve as an indicator how close the explorer is to facing his predestined death.
These people were tagged as numbered instead of called by their names, sent to live in places and leave all their belongings behind to be burned by the Nazis. The Jewish people were not just deprived of their identities or their belongings, but of all their human rights.
