Human Rights Watch April 6: Vietnam: End Attacks on Year Old Democracy Movement

Washington, D.C., April 6, 2007

On the eve of Bloc 8406’s first anniversary, members of the group, which calls for greater political freedom in Vietnam, still face harassment and abuse, including imprisonment, Human Rights Watch said today.

The Vietnamese government should end its persecution of citizens trying to exercise their rights to free expression and assembly, Human Rights Watch said.
