I am Huynh Thuc Vy, a dissident blogger, a human rights defender in Vietnam. While I am sharing these words with you, torture and violence against civilians, especially dissidents still continue and get more serious.
The universal principles: Freedom, Democracy and Human rights are “luxurious things to our people. Farmers are displaced from their land. Workers are exploited in factories. Protesters are brutally beaten due to their gathering to express peaceful patriotism.
We really want to enjoy Democracy. We really want to get Freedom. We really want to have Human Rights. These values are protected and promoted in your countries, but in our country, we have to pay a high price for them.
We might be imprisoned because of exercising the rights to freedom of religion, expression, peaceful assembly, and association.
The authorities not only use legal instruments to muzzle dissidents , but also use violence and torture against them. Year by year, the number of the authorities’ violent victims increases rapidly. We are frequently under violent attack by police-sponsored thugs and even by uniformed police in police stations.
How will the future of our country be with violence encouraged by the authorities? How will our children grow up when they usually see their parents beaten. We fail to enjoy peaceful lives and fail to contribute to building our country because law enforcement agencies do not hesitate to brazenly violate human rights.
We want to tell the world that we just really want to exercise our fundamental rights.
What would you to help us? Share this video and take actions to tell the Vietnamese authorities to:
Return land to poor petitioners!
Return the right to freedom of trade union to labors.
Return the right to freedom of expression to our people!
Return pagodas and churches to congregations!
Free all prisoners of conscience!
With this video, I may ask you to help us:
Stop violence! Stop torture in Vietnam!
