18th PROTEST STATEMENT AGAINST CHINESE INVADING AUTHORITIES AND VIETNAMESE SELLING - MOTHERLAND REGIME

Vietnam, December 20th, 2007

Dear fellow citizens inside, outside Vietnam and international friends:

Recent political incidents in Vietnam since the government of China has announced its decision to merge Paracel and Spratly Archipelagos of Vietnam (Hoang Sa and Truong Sa archipelagos) to Tam Sa precinct in Hai Nam province of China on February 12, 07 has helped Vietnamese People and international communities further understand the politically and militarily aggressive natures of the two Communist political parties and illegitimate regimes based on many historical facts as follows: 

I- Chinese administrative directives authorizing invasions of Vietnam step-by-step

II- Escalating invasion activities of China

III- Weakening reactions of the Communist authorities of Vietnam

IV- Bloc 8406’s assessments

V- Bloc 8406’s Declaration

Lastly, on the coming occasions of Christmas and New Year of 2008, our Bloc 8406 joyfully celebrate these great events and sincerely extend our best wishes to appreciate Vietnamese fellow citizens inside and outside Vietnam as well as our truly international friends who have strongly supported and spiritually encouraged our Bloc 8406 during the past years.

Composed and signed in Vietnam on December 20th, 2007
