"If you want to strengthen ties with Washington, Vietnam needs to improve its human rights record" is a word that emphasizes the United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as a strong statement from diplomats Leading the U.S. in a speech at the East-West Center in Hawaii, the United States on Thursday 10-11-2011 Asian policy. Before the human rights situation is increasingly worse in Vietnam, the U.S. government despite the current warm relations between Washington and Hanoi in terms of economic, military and diplomatic,situation of human rights is considered bad Vietnam's currency today is a major obstacle for the development of strategic relations between the two former enemies.
Not only the U.S. government that many countries of the bloc to the European Union such as the British, Germany, France and Norway.......also urged the government of Vietnam to respect human rights and stop the repression wrong for moderate voices in the country as well as immediate release of political prisoners, prisoners of conscience being the Vietnam Communist authorities imprisoned the wrong way especially for prisoners of conscience Father Nguyen Van Ly, who was arrested and sent back to prison last Thursday 25-07-2011 in bad condition due to the raging of the tumor in the brain has led to father suffered a stroke several times during the detention.
However, it is easy to see that we can hardly expect the change from the perspective, attitude and wrongdoing where the communist government of Vietnam. Disease due to the inherent benefit of themselves and their families is too great and this is the biggest obstacle in helping the party leaders and the communist authorities are aware of the implications that they bear from the authoritarian rule by force, by harassment, arrests and illegal detention of their citizens. It is evident immediately such as: administration during Vietnam-US two countries are conducting human rights dialogue in Washington, the United States, in the country, the communist government continued to harass the voices moderates in the country as families writer Huynh Ngoc Tuan with two children are the bloggers are in the limelight; Huynh Thuc Vy Huynh Trong Hieu and simultaneously suppress the arrest of Falun Gong practitioners ... Forum Thai Ha parish pressure v. .. v. ..... ...
We continue to support to the struggle for democracy and human rights peacefully, non-violence. However, the current struggle is to compromise and too soft. This is the cause of the government behaving indiscriminately despite the law and disregard of international law. We need to clear attitude against a resolute and unanimous. Upon the occurrence of repression and harassment of people like what happened in a number of parishes in recent years and in the parish of Thai Ha, Hanoi, as recently, people should unite into one mass, large enough, strong enough to apply to the attack mode by force, electric batons and whips ....from the communist authorities. The experience should be drawn and replicated across the country that is the union of the faithful of the parish of Thai Ha parish have done in the nearly past time as well as for Father Hoang Quynh years old in the past when government to use violence to attack the parish and parish.
We do not share the violent After all, no After all the use of violence in response to attacks from the communist government. However, we have the right to protect themselves, protect themselves for the Father, the Priest and the Church authorities to protect our legitimate way as mentioned in the petition of Father Nguyen Van Phuong, the parish of Thai Ha sent to the Hanoi authorities and governments at all levels in the use of thugs to attack Thai Ha parish, the priest and the parish Priest of last Thursday 03-11-2011 . Upon the occurrence of the incident suppression, attacking from the government as last time, people just need more crowded than the number of gangsters, many people over the police forces of all kinds and determined to defend the parish , expressed opposition clearly and unequivocally about if must change the non-violation protest at present by another way to protect themselves is beyond the expectations of the people.
