Nha Trang's Bloggers Celebrate International HR Day

Nha Trang, December 7 – Some bloggers today celebrated the International Human Rights Day of December 10 by disseminating HR documents in public sites. 

From 8.30am, a group of bloggers, including Nguyễn Ngọc Như Quỳnh (aka. Mẹ Nấm), Khổng Hy Thiêm, Võ Trường Thiện, and Phạm Văn Hải (aka. Việt Man), wearing advocacy T-shirts of the Network of Vietnamese Bloggers, walked down the streets to hand in HR documents to people.

The materials they disseminated included an article on basic human rights, copies of the UN Convention against Torture to which Vietnam is a signatory, and an article introducing this Convention. 

The United Nations Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment, abbreviated as UNCAT, is an international human rights instrument, under the review of the United Nations, that aims to prevent torture and cruel, inhuman degrading treatment or punishment around the world.

The Convention requires states to take effective measures to prevent torture within their borders, and forbids states to transport people to any country where there is reason to believe they will be tortured.

According to the Network of Vietnamese Bloggers, Vietnam signed UNCAT on November 7, 2013 and is set to ratify it in 2014. However, so far Vietnam's laws have not provided a clear definition of what acts constitute torture.

Law enforcement bodies in Vietnam, including, for example, police, security officials and prison guards, still use torture for interrogation and punishment of suspects, detainees and prisoners. Torturous acts range from fetter to incommunicado detention and poor prison conditions. 

As a signatory to UNCAT, therefore, Vietnam should ratify the Convention soon and, at the same time, amend its laws to provide a clear definition of torturous acts as well as penalties for the offenders.

Asked about the case of Nguyễn Thanh Chấn, who was tortured, extorted confession and had to serve ten years of a life sentence before released without compensation, some pedestrians said they did not read newspapers so they were uninformed. However, people were enthusiastic in receiving the documents and read them in eagerness. One pedestrian even commented, “Good articles. Why don't you add 'pass this article on to others after reading it'?” 

Others said, “Each of us should have these documents for more knowledge about human rights,” “We are bullied because we are uninformed,” “The materials are really good. This is to help all of us, so all of us should read them.”

The bloggers also disseminated the leaflets on buses and inside bookstores. One bookstore, Ponagar, held ten kits for visitors. Many young people eagerly joined the bloggers. 

The celebration of the International HR Day ended at 10am. The bloggers took photos of themselves raising three fingers marked with three letters, M, L, and B, which stand for Mang Luoi Blogger, or The Network of Vietnamese Bloggers.

    Tai nạn đụng xe máy nguy hiểm đã xảy ra cho tôi tại Thành Phố Đà Nẵng, vào chiều tối ngày 05, 12, 2013.
    Người đàn ông trên 50 tuổi (Làm việc cho cơ quan??) giọng nói người dân Quảng Nam-Đà Nẵng chay xe máy phía sau tôi. Ông ta đâm thẳng vào tay lái phía bên trái tôi, hình như chân ông đạp vào xe tôi, rồi ông vù xe chạy lên phía trước khoảng 30 mét rồi dừng lại…
    Xe và người tôi ngã xuống, mặt đâm vào đường lộn vòng… (Chiếc mũ bảo hiểm tốt đã cứu mạng sống)

    Chi tiết của vụ tại nạn này, vụ tai nạn ở TP Hải Phòng hơn một năm trước đây tương tự…
    Thiết nghĩ đây là vụ đụng xe có thủ thuật, được dàn dựng sắp đặt trước…
    (Nếu không có chiếc mũ bảo hiểm tốt (Mũ bảo hiểm trùm đầu, cổ và cằm) thì tôi đã vở sọ tử thương…

    Tôi vẫn tự đặt ra câu hỏi để xem xét lại những gì mình suy nghĩ… Trong cả hai (2) trường hợp tai nạn nạn này!!! Có phải mình đã nghi ngờ quá mức, phán xét sai lầm!!!

    Tôi suy xét sự việt xảy ra, đã ghi lại những chi tiết của hai (2) tại xảy ra, ở 2 TP Cảng Việt Nam. Hải Phòng--Đà Nẵng trong 2 năm qua. Tôi sẽ đăng tải chia sẻ cùng các bạn…

    Tương lai động đất sóng thần
    Đà Nẵng, Đà Lạt phải cần đề cao.
    Miền Trung Hà Nội kêu gào đau thương…
    Xảy ra như bãi chiến trường
    Lăng Hồ, Hoàn Kiếm ngập đường tử thi…


    Bạn ăn bạn nhậu…, thì nhiều …
    Bạn đời lý tưởng sớm chiều tìm đâu!!!
