Skip to comments.Little Saigon's 2nd 'Communist FREE Zone' = Westminster
Posted on 05/20/2004 1:51:39 PM PDT by ALOHA RONNIE
...Last night the Westminster, California City Council voted 5-0 to become the 2nd 'Communist FREE Zone' City in America, following Garden Grove's 5-0 lead from last week. These 2 City Resolutions will prevent Communist Vietnam Leaders from coming to Little Saigon in public motorcades that would incite expensive protests from FREE Vietnamese-Americans.
...In early 2003 these Cities' roles were reversed as Westminster, in February, became the 1st City in America to proclaim the FREE Flag of the former Republic of South Vietnam as the official Flag for its Vietnamese-American Community to fly next to our American Flag of FREEDOM at its own Community functions. The next month my own home town Garden Grove quickly followed suit.
...In the 14 months since ...68 Cities and 5 States have now followed Westmister and Garden Grove's lead ...in invalidating the Communist Flag still flying over an enslaved Vietnam.
...All to hasten FREEDOM's Return to Vietnam.
GOD is GOOD.

From today's Los Angeles Times, by Times Staff Writer DAVID HALDANE:
Vietnam Officials Should Stay Away, Westminster Council Says
-City joins Garden Grove in formally opposing visits by representatives of the Communist regime. Ex-video store owner criticizes move.
What does a declaration that a city is a communist free zone look like?
I would like to introduce this idea to Santa Cruz County, CA.
I'll see what I can do for you, GoodHeart...
From your link:
International Christian Concern (ICC) alleges that an Easter crackdown by the Vietnamese government against Montagnard Christians in Vietnam's Central Highlands resulted in the deaths of at least 280 people.
At least another 26 people are missing, according to the ICC, which claims to be getting information from the Vietnamese villages affected.
"We have the reports coming in from different villages - people calling in and saying, 'here's how many we lost, here's the names and what village,'" King said, adding that the information is difficult to obtain because Vietnamese soldiers have attempted to seal off the affected villages to outsiders.
The persecution of the Montagnards allegedly can be traced as far back as the end of the Vietnam War. "They were friends with the U.S. back in the war, so they've just been marked ever since and hated," King said.
Three years ago, according to King, the Vietnamese government launched a similar crackdown when the Montagnards protested their living conditions and Vietnamese soldiers ended up killing about 400 pastors, he said.
Kok Ksor, president of Montagnard Foundation, Inc., left Vietnam in 1975 and for the last 14 years has fought to "preserve the lives and culture" of the Montagnard Christians from his home in Spartanburg, S.C.
"We don't have any right to our ancestral land. They confiscate all of our land ... they relocate our people from our ancestral land -- good farm land -- to the land where we could not grow anything to survive," Ksor told CNSNews.com .
"The people can't take any more. They said, 'sooner or later, we're going to die. But before we die, we have to let the world know,'" Ksor added.
U.S. Sen. Sam Brownback, a Republican from Kansas, has met in the past with Vietnamese officials and been promised that his staff would be given access to the villages in the Central Highlands, according to Aaron Groote, Brownback's press secretary.
"When the staff arrived, however, they were not allowed to enter the region," Groote stated in a response to CNSNews.com questions.
"We don't want to speculate on the exact number of killings, but there have certainly been substantiated reports of many deaths and the violent suppression of demonstrators by the Vietnamese government," Groote added.
As for congressional attempts to stop the persecution, Brownback "feels strongly that we have not seen the improvements in Vietnam's human rights record that some people claim have been made in the past three years," Groote stated. He added that his boss "remains very concerned about the situation there."
