Sáng ngày 30 tháng 10, 2017 khi hai Linh mục Đaminh Phạm Xuân Kế, quản hạt Đông Tháp và Giuse Nguyễn Ngọc Ngự, quản xứ Đông Kiều được UBND xã Diễn Mỹ mời làm việc liên quan đến tài sản giáo dân Đông Kiều bị hủy hoại, thì bị uy hiếp bởi hằng trăm người thuộc “Liên Minh Cờ Đỏ” ngay trước cổng Ủy Ban.

Vì sao nhóm người dữ dằn với những hành vi kích động bạo lực, lại dám ngang nhiên lộng hành trước cơ quan chính quyền, mà các cơ quan chức năng lại không có động thái gì?

Điều này ắt không phải là ngẫu nhiên.

Engaging Vietnam on Human Rights

When human rights in Vietnam are discussed in the international community it is invariably the nation’s track record on freedom of speech, or lack thereof, which takes precedence. The communist nation is regularly excoriated for its human rights track record, by which critics usually mean the locking up of bloggers, but the issues that so concern many of those same bloggers – corruption, police brutality, and workers’ rights, among others – are often all but absent from the majority of discussions about human rights, at least publicly.
