Their blood produced a great anger and the courage To contend with heroism. On the 17th of April, under the revolutionary banner, Their blood freed us from the state of slavery. Hurrah for the glorious 17th of April! That wonderful victory had greater significance Than the Angkor period! We are uniting To construct a Kampuchea with a new and better society, Democratic, egalitarian and just. We follow the road to a firmly-based Independence.
