Million Hearts, One Voice: Truc Ho’s Human Rights Campaign

For the past couple months, Mr. Truc Ho has been conducting yet another brilliant campaign for human rights in Vietnam.  This most recent campaign is called “Million Hearts, One Voice,” and has caused quite a headache for the Communist leadership in Hanoi.  Not only did Truc Ho present a petition with over 135,000 signatures to both American and U.N leaders about Vietnam’s human rights issue, he also crafted a beautiful new song to support his campaign.

One of the flagships of Truc Ho’s campaign, next to his petition, is his newly composed song, “Trieu Con Tim,” or “A Million Hearts.”  Trieu Con Tim is a finely crafted song that vividly describes the countless abuses and failures of the Communist Party in Vietnam.  Their pathetic display on the world stage, especially their kowtowing to Beijing and the CCP, as well as their pathetic displays at home brought to light.

The song mentions some specific cases that happened recently in Vietnam.  One such case is the self-immolation of a mother in protest of the Hanoi government.  As a blogger, her daughter was detained as result of her courage to criticize the party.  Other cases, such as the government’s seizing of a citizen’s property, and the losing of Paracel and Spratly are also mentioned.  These stories will be mentioned in more detail in future posts.

This campaign has made a huge impact America’s new foreign policy towards Vietnam.  The Obama Administration’s Vietnam policy has shifted dramatically, and relations between the two nations have begun to deteriorate.  The U.S. has become fed up with the lack of progress on Vietnam’s human rights situation.  Therefore, they no longer seek to strengthen relations with the Communist Vietnamese.  This recent development will too be covered in a follow-up article.

For now, if you haven’t already, give this song a listen, enjoy it, and think about the message that it is delivering.  In the near future, I will write an article that gives everyone an opportunity to download the music of Truc Ho, as well as the music of Viet Khang.  This will make it possible for anyone who has access to this blog, whether inside or outside of Vietnam, to download the music and circulate it where ever they feel necessary.  Until then, hang tight, my fellows, and stock up on some blank CD’s.

    Thank you anh Truc Ho, SBTN and Trung Tam Asia for continuing the fight for independence and freedom for Vietnam.

  4. It’s in fact very complicated in this active life to listen news on TV, so I simply use web for that purpose, and get the most recent news.

    I love all the songs you have written, Mr. Truc Ho. “Million Hearts, One Voice is no exception. Do you have the English translation to this song? I know you have the words on the video while the singers are singing, but I have to stop the music to copy the words line by line and it is taking too long. I would love it if I could see them written down on one page. Can you please email it to me? Thank you in advance. I hope that you will continue to write more songs that are so incredibly inspiring, heart-warming, and brilliant for human rights and for our beloved country Vietnam. I would very much like to teach my students your songs and to share with my schools and colleagues the meanings of the songs in English.
    I am looking forward to hearing from you. Please write soon. By the way, we are going to do a skit with the song “Footprints of Vietnam” for our Thanksgiving celebration. We did it for Thanksgiving in 2010 and we are going to do it again because parents loved it so much.

      This is me again. I was typing my name and I wasn’t done checking then the whole thing just went. My name is Truong Thanh Thu’y not Truong Thanh Thu. Sorry I had to write in English because my Vietnamese fonts are not working and I hate to write Vietnamese without the accent marks.

  7. Truong Thanh Thu'y Says:

    What happened to what I wrote with the name Truong Thanh Thu, the name that is not supposed to be my name because I was not done writing? When I looked back, everything I wrote was gone. Is there a way to retrieve it? Thank you!

    Now I see it. Thank you so much!
