International Herald Tribune, May 29: Vietnamese-American Activists Call for US to Pressure Vietnam on Human Rights

Washington D.C., May 29, 2007

Four Vietnamese-American activists urged U.S. President George W. Bush on Tuesday to increase pressure on Vietnam to respect human rights and said the United States should support openly democratic forces working to bring change to Hanoi.

The White House meeting was meant to send a message of disapproval to Vietnam on its increasingly harsh treatment of anti-government activists.
