Fighting For Vietnam

Protest is the word for Vietnam this weekend, as young Vietnamese people from all across the globe have risen to show their disgust for the crimes of Red China.  From Paris to Tokyo, the people of Vietnam have come together in unity, expressing their undying love for their homeland in the face of Chinese aggression.  The story however, is even bigger inside of Vietnam.  Hours from now, possibly even as we speak, large-scale demonstrations are set to take place in the cities of Hanoi and Saigon.

It is unclear how large these protests are going to be, or how long they will last.  Even more unpredictable however, is what will happen once these demonstrations actually take place.  The Communist Party in Vietnam has been extremely uncharacteristic as of late, allowing the people to protest against China, but even they have their limits.  Last week, as the third round of protests were underway, the Communist Police in Saigon surrounded the homes of all prominent protest leaders and prevented them from participating.  As a result, the scale of the protests in Saigon was dramatically reduced and quickly dispersed by the security forces of the VCP.

The protests set for today are supposed to be the biggest by far, calling upon everyone in Vietnam to stand up and rise against the tyrannies of Red China.  This can be a monumental event, but it can also have a terrible, violent outcome.  As mentioned in the past, the Communists are professional killers, specially trained and bred to eliminate any threat in the name of the Party.  A protest of this scale will almost definitely spark some type of Communist reaction.  It is possible that there may be patriots within the Party itself, but even so, experience and history reminds us that the VCP can never be trusted.

For now, the best we can do is support the people inside of Vietnam.  If a real change were to come, the people inside Vietnam will be the ones to lead the way.  We in the west too have the capacity to help the motherland, but for now, we are only on the outside looking in.  In order to understand what Vietnam truly needs, one must understand how brutal the regime truly is.  The people on the inside have shed blood, sweat, and tears through this regime every single day.  For this reason, they will be the ones to make a change.

There is no telling what will happen tonight, the only thing one can be sure of is that the people will not give up.  For too long, the people of Vietnam have been terrorized by the Party, living through their ruthless repression, and watching them sell out to China.  It is time the Party understood the determination of the Vietnamese people.  If the government cannot defend the country, the people surely will.  We will prevail.
