Vietnamese Students to Protest China in Washington D.C.



L.D.

24 January 2008

In an effort to continue to put pressure on the Chinese government to cease its expansionist activities in the South China Sea, especially that of controlling islands that once belonged to Vietnam, and the killing and harrassing of Vietnamese fishermen in the sea, Vietnamese students in the Washington D.C. area are organizing another demonstration to take place in front of the Chinese Embassy in the nation’s capital on 2 February 2008 from 10 am until 2 pm.

According to Duat Le (919 450 7934/ duat.le@gmail.com)., one of the organizers of the demonstration, the protest will highlight Chinese atrocities in the South China Sea, in particular, the 2005 shooting in the Gulf of Tonkin that ended with 9 Vietnamese fishermen being killed, 7 wounded, and another 8 captured.

In a letter that has been sent out to other Vietnamese Student Associations calling for participation in the protest, it is stated that the purpose of the protest will also be to bring international attention to China’s invasion of the Paracel and Spratly archipelagos that Vietnam has rightfully claimed for many centuries.

The protest, taking place only 5 days before both Chinese and Vietnamese celebrate the Lunar New Year, the most important holiday for these two peoples, no doubt a new dimension will be brought to this year’s festivities.

Vietnamese activists in California have also planned to print bumper stickers and fliers to distribute to attendants at New Year festivals where tens of thousands of people will come to celebrate in order to galvanize support for the resistance effort against China’s expansionist policy in Southeast Asia.

As Vietnamese people organize in protest in Vietnam and throughout the world, China will undoubtedly begin to feel that its blatant violations in the South China Sea will no longer go unnoticed and smoothly as before.
