True to his discernment Phil Robertson, director of the Asia division at Human Rights Watch, this is not just a family tragedy but the tragedy of a country. In recent decades, the Vietnamese Communist government has ruled and the people running the country by the dictatorial, authoritarian inhuman. Especially since the uprising of the people in some Arab countries, Middle East and North Africa and overthrowing the dictatorial, authoritarian leadership, the Party and Vietnam's communist government felt bitter taste, restless sleep and then days and nights in fear of a similar revolution to the formation and explosive even in Vietnam.
Therefore, the Party leadership and dictatorial communist government of Vietnam has sought to respond by an increase in the violent crackdown aimed at dissenting voices in the country. Especially targeted at religious institutions which are believed to have extensive influence and close to all classes of people. Besides, the authorities also perform many other tricks to stifle freedom of speech of the people as the tight control of Internet use, management and strictly control the mass media as the media and press ... distorted information and distort the truth to slander people and religious representatives that aim to create the opportunity and legal reasons to make arrests to those who without or having different views with party and government despite violations of the law, public international law violated and trampled upon human moral conscience.
And suppression of human endurance has its limits and the burning herself to death throes of a blogger mother, who had been a party member, a police officer for many years under communism and is imprisoned for crime that dare made the legitimate and lawful freedom of speech without the permission of the State government as a warning bell for the Party leadership and the Vietnam's communist authorities. It is increasingly clear evidence of deepening discontent among people against the government and even resentment from people who have devoted time, work and community service for communist government before and today. Tragic death of blogger Ta Phong Tan's mother has caused millions of Vietnamese hearts to pity and poignancy. And this is the first blood lesson and finally to the Party leadership and the communist government of Vietnam. Please wake up soon before its too late, otherwise the course is not only against a person or a group that is the deal with millions of hearts Vietnam is simmering desire Democracy, Public Woodblock.
