IN THE NEW REVOLUTION IN THE SOUTH CHINA SEA – WE CALL FOR THE IMMEDIATE RELEASE OF PRISONERS OF CONSCIENCE (POC).

In the last two weeks of July 2020, the US government and the Australian government have opposed the so-called China’s “nine-dash sea” – in the other word “Cow Tongue line” in the South China Sea. There are many indications showing that the other concerned countries will soon issue an announcement in the coming days.

In this unprecedented historical moment, we – the Vietnamese people who co-sign this letter – would like to express our admiration and gratitude toward to the government of United State, government of Australia as well as all other countries those are speaking the truth and stand for justice.

We also earnestly urge the Vietnamese government to take advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to bring China to justice, as well as bring opportunities for Vietnamese people to oppose China’s invasion and protect our national sovereignty.

However, in order to properly carry out these tasks, we call on the Vietnamese government to immediately release those who are imprisoned because of participating in protests against China’s invasion, speaking out against the fraudulent construction projects of Chinese contractors, taking actions against Chinese-Signs-Only streets or China’s intentions of aggression.

In addition, to bring back the patriotic spirit and passing it to our nation, the government needs to immediately release all Vietnamese activists.

We earnestly urge Vietnamese government not to miss this rare opportunity.

Let’s stand up for our country! Let’s stand by our nation!
