Vietnam: Release Social Activists and Bloggers; Withdraw all ChargesLetter by William Gomes Salem-News.com
The International Declaration of Human Rights establishes that freedom of speech and freedom of assembly; are guaranteed by the United Nations.
(SALEM) - Seventeen activists and bloggers are being held in Vietnam under deteriorating conditions without access to the most basic rights.
As William Gomes illustrates in his letter below, The International Declaration of Human Rights establishes that freedom of speech and freedom of assembly, are guaranteed by the United Nations, which became active in the late 1940's after the Allies won World War Two. The original purpose of this gathering of nations was to enure that the demented tyranny of men like Adolf Hitler and the like would never be allowed to surface again.
The first thing evil dictators and political leaders inevitably do, is attack the personal liberties of citizens to restrict their resistance. U.S. President George W. Bush essentially did the same thing with 'Homeland Security' and a war in Iraq that left up to 1.5 million people dead over 'bad intelligence'. Vietnam, which has made much progress in recent years, needs to appreciate the humiliation they bring upon their own government with the persecution of people who disagree and free the 17 from custody.
