One of the unreasonable things that government has been interpreted ambiguous component against the dissent with the government, so long often public opinion at home and abroad and the International Community to condemn .
The frequent use of the above unreasonably vague about in the Penal Code of Vietnam's communist government to enforce and prevent the rights of freedom of speech of the people from the communist government of Vietnam is a very dangerous act, not only trample the fundamental rights of the people, completely contrary to Vietnam's commitments to international human rights, but also a great challenge progress for all mankind all over the world. On the one hand, the communist party and the state government claims refer to the opinions of people in the drafting of the State to amend the Constitution, in accordance with the aspirations of the people and in line with the current state of the country today. On the other hand, the Communist Party and the State government Vietnam continued violation of human rights, disregard the law and the State Constitution, as well as serious challenges international law and moral conscience of human.
Vietnamese people living in and outside the country let strongly opposed the aforementioned wrongful act of the communist government of Vietnam and need more practical action in the International requirements prevent Vietnamese communist authorities continue to suppress people in the country. Every one of us should actively participate in sign to support the petition amended the State Constitution of 2013 is currently being group promotion Bauxite Vietnam. The voices of millions of people at the same time sounding will create a certain pressure on the communist government of Vietnam to respect human rights as well as cause the attention and more interest from the Community International co. Before widespread demand from the collective masses, and the pressure increased from the International Community, especially the country has a huge influence on Vietnam as the United States and other countries block of the European Community, is convinced that the Vietnamese Party and State leaders certainly must reconsider the policy and their wrongdoing at present.
