Saigon Broadcasting Television Network Petitions the White House for Human Rights in Viet Nam

The Saigon Broadcasting Television Network and friends based in Orange County’s Little Saigon community have launched an aggressive campaign seeking at least 25,000 electronic signatures to President Barrack Obama to protest the arrest of activists as human rights violations by the Vietnamese government. 

Take a moment to sign the petition below and it doesn’t matter if you’re Vietnamese  https://wwws.whitehouse.gov/petitions#!/petition/stop-expanding-trade-vietnam-expense-human-rights/53PQRDZH

SBTN’s message is simple.  Stop expanding trade with Vietnam at the expense of human rights.  Since 2007, the Vietnamese government has continuously waged brutal crackdown against human rights advocates, arresting and/or detaining notables such as: Rev. Nguyen Van Ly, Nobel Peace Prize nominees Ven.Thich Quang Do and Dr.Nguyen Dan Que, blogger Dieu Cay, and most recently songwriter Viet Khang, who merely expressed love for freedom and patriotism through songs he posted online.

Congress responded by introducing the Vietnam Human Rights Act, Vietnam Human Rights Sanctions Act and just last month, House Resolution 484.  The group asks President Obama to take advantage of Vietnam’s desire for the Trans-Pacific Partnership and Generalized System of Preferences to force the Vietnamese government to immediately and unconditionally releasse all detained or imprisoned human rights champions. 

The petition is being driven by Phu Do Nguyen, a Vice President at SBTN.

    I am an American Vietnam Veteran who had the good fortune to speak with Jack the owner of Saigon Express Restaurant in San Antonio last week who informed me of the petition drive. I gladly signed and joined the movement to demand human rights for those in Vietnam. Please join us in this noble cause. Xin cảm ơn bạn bè của tôi.

    As one of the many activists who have been tweeting to educated the American public on the abuses of human rights in VietNam over the years, I’m touched to see the SBTN petition to the White House has garnered 145K+ signatures so far. Thank you.

    Please keep up the pressures, there are many bloggers and dissidents who have disappeared by the Vietnamese regime.
