ANNUAL REPORTS ON HUMAN RIGHTS IN VIETNAM
The Vietnam Human Rights Network has published its annual reports on Human Rights in Vietnam as of 2009. The reports outline recent human rights developments in Vietnam and egregious human rights violations by the government of Vietnam against its citizens' fundamental rights. As cooperative works of many human rights activists in Vietnam and in the Diaspora, those annual reports give a truthful picture of the human rights situation in Vietnam. Original stories are cross-checked and compared with related sources, such as social networks (Facebook, individual blogs, Twitter etc.), international news or research organizations, and even Vietnamese government news sources and data.
The reports include a number of chapters corresponding to the fundamental human rights set forth by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Recommendations include concrete and feasible propositions sent to the government of Vietnam, foreign governments and international organizations that have business with Vietnam. The reports also include appendices listing the names of prisoners of conscience currently held in jail or under house arrest.
