THƯ NGỎ VÀ LỜI KÊU GỌI của
CỘNG ĐỒNG NGƯỜI VIỆT TỰ DO ÚC CHÂU
Ban Chấp Hành Cộng Đồng Người Việt Tự Do Úc Châu trân trọng kính mời và kêu gọi toàn thể đồng bào Việt Nam trên toàn thế giới và tại Úc Châu đồng loạt ký tên vào Kiến Nghị Thư yêu cầu Thượng Viện Quốc Hội Úc trực tiếp đặt cuộc Đối Thoại Nhân Quyền với cộng sản Việt Nam dưới sự kiểm sát của Quốc Hội và đặt điều kiện cải tiến nhân quyền trong mọi viện trợ phát triển của Úc cho cộng sản Việt Nam.
Kiến Nghị Thư nầy do Cộng Đồng Người Việt Tự Do Liên Bang Úc Châu khởi xướng và Thượng Nghị Sĩ Liên Bang Ron Boswell (Queensland, Australia) bảo trợ.
Trong tháng Tư Đen nầy, khi chúng ta tưởng niệm 37 năm chế độ cộng sản Hà Nội chiếm đóng Việt Nam Tự Do thì Hà Nội lại càng khiêu khích hàng chục triệu đồng bào trong nước và hai triệu người Việt hải ngoại với quyết định truy tố những ngòi bút tranh đấu cho tự do đân chủ và nhân quyền như Phan Thanh Hải (Anh Ba Sài Gòn), Nguyễn Văn Hải (Điếu Cầy) và Bà Tạ Phong Trần (Sự Thật và Công Lý) về ‘tội’ tuyên truyền chống Nhà Nước (Nguồn: Pháp Tấn Xã/AFP ngày 15.04.2012).
Nếu được đồng bào yểm trợ đông đảo để Thượng Viện Quốc Hội Úc chấp thuận và thi hành, Kiến Nghị Thư nầy sẽ là một bước tiến vô cùng quan trọng vì nó gia tăng vai trò của Cộng Đồng Người Việt Tự Do trong việc theo dõi, đóng góp ý kiến và cập nhật tin tức về tình trạng nhân quyền tại Việt Nam, khi cuộc Đối Thoại Nhân Quyền song phương diễn ra tại Úc Châu, và tạo cơ hội cho Quốc Hội thẩm định tra cứu hiệu quả của các cuộc Đối Thoại.
Xin hãy cùng nhau góp sức tranh đấu cho Nhân Quyền tại Việt Nam bằng cách ký tên vào Kiến Nghị Thư quan trọng này của Cộng Đồng Người Việt Tự Do Úc Châu. Xin hãy cùng nhau lên tiếng cho Tự Do Dân Chủ và Nhân Quyền, để Cộng Sản Việt Nam phải thả những tù nhân yêu nước như Việt Khang, Bùi Thị Minh Hằng và các nhà tranh đấu dân chủ nhân quyền khác tại Việt Nam.
Xin quý vị theo sự chỉ dẫn dưới đây để ký vào Kiến Nghị Thư. Hạn chót để ký tên là: ngày 17 tháng 6 năm 2012.
Xin chân thành cám ơn sự quan tâm và đóng góp quí báu của toàn thể quý vị.

Peace and stability are the objectives that the United Nations have pledged to establish this Century.
Furthermore, in 2011, the United Nations have also marked the 30th anniversary of the publication of “Declaration on the Elimination of All Forms of Intolerance and of Discrimination Based on Religion or Belief”.
We believe that all members of the United Nations have the duty to pursue the common goals of peace, stability and social justice that this body has striven for.
However, in the past couple of decades, for economic development, the government of Chinese Communists has been following a policy of progressive occupation of the neighbouring regions that it alleges to be its land and sea territories. A typical instance is the region of the South East Asia Pacific Sea that it calls China Sea, which has caused confusion in the international opinion.
Therefore, for the last six months, Nguyen thai Hoc Foundation has lead a campaign seeking online signatures (http://www.change.org/petitions/change-the-name-south-china-sea-to-southeast-asia-sea) demanding the change in name from China Sea to Southeast Asia Sea. This campaign has gathered 49,436 signatures from different individuals residing in 100 countries all over the world. The purpose of this campaign aims at restating the sovereignty of Viet Nam over the sea regions in question.
Another member of the United Nations, the Vietnamese Communist government, has constantly and fragrantly violated human rights that the United Nations had defined.
These past and present acts of aggression of the Chinese Communist government have intensified, and it could constitute the fuse that ignites a war that will undermine the stability and the prosperity of the South East Pacific region in particular and of the whole world as a whole.
And the acts of human rights violation of the government of Vietnamese Communist have reached a critical level, severely affecting the life of the Vietnamese population; these acts have also spread in the region and created an oppressive ambiance which threatening the stability and the prosperity of the neighbouring people and the world.
We invite everybody to join their efforts for the sake of peace, prosperity of the region and the whole world to support and sign for this Common Declaration on the South East Asia Pacific Sea.
Best regards and thank you all.
Please spend 5 minutes to sign the Petition.

Regarding the Jasmine Revolution in North Africa and the Middle East
The Jasmine Revolution, which has toppled long-standing dictatorships in Tunisia after 23 years with Ben Ali, and in Egypt after 30 years with Hosni Murabak, has spread to at least ten other countries in North Africa and the Middle East. This is only the latest wave of mankind’s triumphal and inevitable march toward democracy.
We cannot help but applaud these two revolutions and wish speedy success to our friends in North Africa and the Middle East in their non-violent, peaceful, and orderly revolution, especially in their legitimate demands such as the right to work and freedoms of opinion, information, press, assembly, and religion, and the freedom to choose the most worthy leaders to represent them in a just and democratic society.
We particularly admire the youth of these countries who have shown great self-sacrifice (as in the case of Mohamed Bouazizi) and self-restraint in the struggle for the rights of their fellow citizens. The enthusiastic support that they received from their families, friends, teachers, and especially from the military, shows that they are clearly on the right path.
As the above peaceful mobilization was achieved essentially through modern mass communication tools such as the Internet, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, and cellular telephone, the lesson to be learned from this is that no dictatorship, however cruel or corrupt, can stop the march of mankind toward a better future with liberty and justice for all.
In Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh, who stole ideas from the French and American Revolutions, promised the Vietnamese people in 1945 three simple things: INDEPENDENCE, LIBERTY, AND HAPPINESS. The current Communist regime, one of the most corrupt and repressive regimes in the world, has had 66 years in North Vietnam, and 36 years in the whole country, to deliver on these promises. Yet it has failed miserably. It is about time that 87 million Vietnamese inside Vietnam and the three million overseas join hands in demanding and reclaiming the above same universal rights for our people!
Moreover, the Communist leadership – past and present – has given up part of our territorial lands and seas to Communist China in order to protect their own power, leading Vietnam to the brink of extinction as an independent country. Never before has our beloved country had to let thousands of young women go abroad to become foreign brides and sex workers. Never before has our country had to let hundreds of thousands of young men go abroad to work as labour slaves to bring money to the Vietnamese Communist Party. Never before in the history of our country those who express their legitimate and patriotic views are subject to brutal treatment and imprisonment, a fate even worse than what we experienced under the old French colonial rule.
Inside Vietnam, Bloc 8406, Dr. Nguyen Dan Que, and other organizations and individuals as well as students all over the country have called on the Vietnamese people to demand freedom, democracy, and human rights, learning from the experience of Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union, and more recently from that of North Africa and the Middle East.
We, Vietnamese individuals and organizations both inside and outside of Vietnam whose names appear below, would like to add our voices to those of Bloc 8406, Dr. Nguyen Dan Que, and other respected individuals in Vietnam in calling on Vietnamese youth to show the world that the heroic tradition of our forefathers in protecting the integrity of our country is alive and well, and that as a people we are always ready to sacrifice ourselves for the most sacred rights of our citizens, following the non-violent struggle models spearheaded by Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela.
Nguyen Trai (1380-1442), one of Vietnam’s most famous thinkers, comparing the people of a country in supporting its ruler (emperor) to the water in a river supporting a boat, has taught us that “It’s the people who lift up the boat, and it’s also the people who can sink it.” For so long the Vietnamese people have had to endure the utterly brutal and inhuman Communist regime, it’s about time we get rid of it. This is the only way we can protect our country against foreign aggressors who nurture ambitions over our lands and our seas. This is the only way we can defend our independence and secure a future in peace, equality, freedom, and prosperity for our people.
