Video: Last Week’s Protest in Saigon
This is a video of the anti-China protest in Saigon last Sunday, May 11, 2014. It may seem like old news at this point, as this week bore witness to some truly groundbreaking developments across the country. The movement is only gaining steam, and within hours from now, further protests are set to take place inside Vietnam.
I still feel inclined to post this video though, because certain parts of it are just too great not to share.
What makes this video so share-worthy? This, right here.
For anyone unsure of what is happening in this picture, I’ll break it down for you:
That red flag is Vietnam’s communist flag. According to news circulating around the web, some communist party jerks were instructed to attend the protest and insert that flag into the crowd in an attempt to simulate public support for the VCP (Vietnamese Communist Party). This young lady, clearly offended by this idiotic ploy, took it upon herself to rip down the flag and show the communists what the real deal was.
Take that, communism.
Good luck to everyone out there in Vietnam. We’re all with you. Give ’em hell.
