We can say this is the first time a campaign of human rights for Vietnam are Vietnamese Americans launched with magnitude scale on the Internet, send straight to the White House website, Barack Obama requested pressure Government of Vietnam to release political prisoners, conscience and religion were arrested in the country.
A day earlier, ie early morning Feb. 7, Truc Ho, director of television systems SBTN Saigon Broadcasting Television Network in the United States, began installing the petition on the website of the White House with a hundred and fifty petition signatures to display and ready for the Vietnamese to support registration. .
This is also the campaign came from Truc Ho to note when trying to advocate for Vietnamese musician Viet Khang has been detained in the country by authorities. From headquarters in Southern California SBTN, Truc Ho said:
"Recently we have seen happen in many countries persecution and serious human rights violations, most typical the artist Viet Khang because he sang two songs and posted on youtube that he was arrested without a warrant and reason why arrest. Vietnam Khang and his friend, musician Hoang Nhat Thong, has been arrested quietly quietly. People in the group is his Patriotic Youth group, just down the road to the right to express country, were also arrested. For that reason they lobbied the movement to write to Congress and the people of Vietnam in the United States to write his campaign with local MPs.
Ho thought it very important job but need more time for each person to download a form, fill it and send the signature to each locality. So they think they need to send email directly to the president directly. Ho talked with him Dr. Nguyen Dinh Thang. Nguyen Dinh Thang has researched and said that President Obama has a " We The People" program to receive petitions from U.S. citizens that over twenty-five thousand signatures, the president will answer. Ho has decided to petition campaign for president. "
Up to 10 pm at date 7, there were nearly three thousand people signed up to support the campaign has not even really started. This suggests that the positive response of the Vietnamese community in every place, especially with the participation of many young Vietnamese classes such as Vietnam Student Association in North America, and those who do not speak Vietnamese but interested in the situation of human rights violations happening in Vietnam.

As long as the response of the Vietnamese people also spread to friends of their indigenous people. Mr. John Alles, a former U.S. military personnel had served in Vietnam in 1970, states:
"I think there are many things to change related to human rights issues in Vietnam. I know Dr. Thang and BPSOS organization, I also have many friends in the East, so I understand human rights in Vietnam is a concern of the Vietnamese people my friends here.
So I was passing information about this campaign to all the people I know, put it on facebook, tell the other ethnic communities speak Vietnamese as Khmer Krom Organization or The Mountain Foundation for their know about it.

Each person contributed a hand
Mrs. Annie Durkin, was working in Washington DC, expressed:
"Working in DC gave me the opportunity to know pretty much what happened in Vietnam, but more or less American executive or legislative attention. Human Rights is one of the issues of concern. In fact, I participated against human trafficking and slavery in Asia as well as in Vietnam, from which to learn about human rights there. reason I joined this campaign because I think each person should contribute to how a hand is almost 25,000 signatures enough draw the attention of the President. I click on items other organizations in the U.S. make the campaign with many signatures collected. They were successful and I look forward campaign human rights for Vietnam for the White House would succeed so well. "
