THE TRUTH - JUSTICE - LOVE
The report in 2012 of the International Organization for Human Rights (Human Rights Watch) about the increasing persecution of Vietnamese communist state government for the basic freedom of the people in the country have been reflected clearly clear and honest about the current picture of human rights situation in Vietnam. In the context of the economy more severely degraded due to the corruption rife everywhere and in many areas around each other, from the health system, education ... to the field of Finance .. Where ... where also flooded two from the "Corruption". Most serious corruption related to land not only hand in driving the economy of the country to the brink of the abyss, but also is the main cause leading to political instability and Social Affairs as well as creating atmosphere tension between the people and the government.
Corruption increased and prolonged survival for many decades not only erode the trust of the people for the government in a number of areas where even completely lost faith in the policies of the Party and government State of Vietnam. From the Secretary General of the Communist Party of Vietnam, Nguyen Phu Trong to HE President Truong Tan Sang, as well as head of government, prime minister Nguyen Tan Dung, people no longer trust in Personality ethics, as well as their true leader to steer and lead the country to stability and sustainable development. In protracted conference center in Hanoi recently under the chairmanship of the Politburo and the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Vietnam, we see dense flowery words are "self- point ", which is" self-criticism "and any is" Self errors, defects "..... but the end result just like a symphony, choir of a country band business, drums play agreeable, trumpet blow backward and a ...... for the cause of the country, because the image and future of the Communist Party of Vietnam, as appreciation from the public contribution to major component party members .....! Meeting of the Central Executive Committee of the Communist Party of Vietnam ... to weigh the benefits and losses, has come to the consensus as a soft answer turns away wrath, create more opportunities for the Politburo and Comrade X, Member of the politburo repair defects, repair mistakes to continue to dedicate .....for the land of our beloved country Vietnam!!!
After the events that there's no solution to the problems, what will happen that maybe people already know. As the situation of a person with a gun on head but still escape from death, more arrogant and more brutal. Discussing human rights! Freedom and Democracy -! you just require comfortable, themselves comfortable demonstrations, and comfortable on the opposition. International human rights are basic things that every person after birth is inherited by each other and like each other. Communist Party and State governments Vietnam, we always respect the basics. However, due to the unique culture and identity of the nation, as well as due to the political and social context differences between countries together should the Government of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam has own reasons, has own laws and its own rules for their country when applying around in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in Social Vietnam and the Vietnamese people's private lives. General views of the leaders of the Party and the government of Vietnam has so clearly. You are the people, you are the owner of country, you have right to express, you have the freedom to fulfill the basic human rights but must be consistent with "the current provisions of the State law....!!! ".
That's already, basically, and political theory, the State of Vietnam on the form always respect their commitments on human rights. Like this, the churches, temples and other heir places still be allowed to open, still allowed to pray or attend Mass, then why say there is no religious freedom? Feel free to comment and said but in the framework and where the law allows, is not anyone causing trouble or harassment why sure that do not have the right to freedom of speech ...? Hundreds of newspapers, magazines and books are sold abound in the streets so why say Vietnam is not Press Freedom ...? Bishops, priests and religious men and women still go to church, temple ceremonies State even additional contribution Priests state, Monks-owned and owned monks exacerbating the rich of Religious Belief, why saying that the State suppressed the Religion ...!!! in general, if say the communist government repression and violation of human rights of the people is really unjust to the Vietnamese government. Is there, this is only instigated, provoked by the reactionary forces behind the purpose of defamation good image of the people's revolutionary government, with scheming to overthrow the government ..... . and all those people need to be punished before the law under Article 88, Article 79 and Article 258 of the Criminal Code of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam. This cell is the noble language of our beloved late President Ho Chi Minh, the beloved teacher and a great leader of the Vietnamese communists. Requirements entire Party, army and people, and all officers and employees of government institutions have in mind, thorough and thoroughly executed. The Human Rights in the eyes of the Comunist of Vietnam is like that...
