Anti-China Protests in Hanoi and Saigon

The Vietnamese people have taken to the streets in reponse to the Chinese invasion of the Paracel and Spratly islands.  Earlier today, the people of Vietnam gathered outside of the Chinese Embassy in Hanoi to demonstrate against the recent acts of aggression of the PRC in the South China Sea.  Hundreds also met up in Ho Chi Minh City, aka Saigon, to protest against Communist China.

Wearing red t-shirts and carrying flags and banners, the protesters stood outside the embassy chanting slogans comdemning China for their expansionist and belligerent nature.  The police and security forces watched the demonstration take place for a time before dispersing the people and making them leave the protest areas.  In Hanoi, the protesters then marched towards Hoan Kiem Lake, a historical landmark of Le Loi and Nguyen Trai’s time, singing the national anthem and chanting anti-Chinese slogans.

From what has been shown so far, the Vietnamese government did not crush the demonstrations in a violent manner.  Though it is never certain, there is no coverage that the Communist police used many repressive tactics to hurt the protesters in Vietnam.  For once, it seems, the Communist Party is actually on the side of the people in regards to this China problem, within their own limits however. 

The future is always uncertain when it comes to the Communists.  One can only hope that similar events such as these occur more often.  What the Communists decide to do now will determine their fate in the near future.  They would be wise not to antagonize their people anymore.  Instead, they should try to make incremental changes to improve the country and better the lives of the people.  Doing so will significantly reduce the bloodshed and violence that will surely take place if this tyranny were to continue any longer.  Governments rise and fall, but the people are forever!

  1. My uncle was at the protest in Sai Gon yesterday, he was once a South Vietnamese Naval officer himself. I hope the protests make a difference, we can’t exactly trust the VCP. But at least I know that Communists can still stand by former enemies in the face of a larger threat!

  2. This is just the beginning of much larger protesting to be followed as when the Vietnamese youth recognize the Communist Government only here to defend the Party, not the nation and her people. When the dignity of vietnamese as a People has lost by Cowardice of Communist Goverment of Vietnam and when the youth recognize that the Communist goverment needs to be replcaed by some one, whoever, can carry out the godly duty that is to fight against the Chinese Facism of the 21 cencurtry. And at that point in time, all country will rise up and that point will depend on the next action of the chinese facist.
