Are Vietnam Dissidents Having a Tiananmen-style situation?

July 18, 2007 (CSN) -- Note. CSN is passing along the following report that originates from a Vietnamese-American group. While we believe the group (, an ethnic Vietnamese bloc of American voters) to be credible, we have not independently corroborated the news within. The CSN is passing this along on an "FYI" basis and does not assume responsibility for the accuracy of this journalism.

In 1989 the Tiananmen Square protests were a series of protests led by students, intellectuals, and labor activists in China.

[Ed note. The Tiananmen protests were a seven week uprising, centering on Tiananmen Square in Beijing China, and supported around the Chinese nation. Led by college students, the unarmed civilians called for less corruption, more freedom, and democracy in China. The Communist Chinese government responded by sending in the army and used troops, tanks, and live ammunition to clear Tiananmen Square, resulting in a cowardly one sided fight in which 3,001 innocent civilian protestors were killed, by CSN's estimate.]

In 2007 history may be about to repeat in Vietnam with over 1700 Vietnamese peasants from 19 provinces peacefully protesting the illegal confiscation of their land and properties.

Since June 22nd, 2007, a growing number of peasant farmers have protested outside of the office of Vietnam Congress, at 194 Hoang Van Thu Street, Saigon. Their requests for meeting with communist officials went unanswered. While being disappointed, the protesters vowed not to give up as additional protesters from other provinces are coming in Saigon to join in the protest.

By protesting, they all became homeless, sick, tired, and hungry and to discourage them, Vietnamese communist have shut down public restrooms and stopped other fellow countrymen from offering the protesters food, beverages and medicine.

According to sources from within Vietnam, Vietnamese communist has deployed armed police in uniformed in marked and unmarked vehicles surrounding the protestors, ready for an attack.

Vietnam communist government has turned off electricity, scrambled cellular phone signals, restricted media coverage, and deployed hundreds of military personnel with heavy equipment and military tanks ready for the crackdown and slaughter of the protesters.

The Vietnamese communist could begin the massacre at any moment.

Vietnamese Americans are pleading with all Americans, President Bush, Vice President Cheney, members of US Senate and Congress, and members of the media to take immediate actions in order to prevent another Tiananmen Square massacre from happening.

Thank you and God bless America!!!
