Letter from a father: Demand the Vietnamese Authority to review dead penalty for my son Nguyen Van Chuong

If later reading back the heroic amid arduous first decade of the century, we will find the images of the indomitable prisoners who, after being released from prison, still steadfastly look past their days of harsh imprisonment, still accept the reality that they can be returned to communist-hell jail cells to continue their fight. Among these are the women: Pham Thanh Nghien, Do Thi Minh Hanh, Le Thi Kim Thu. The fourth is Bui Thi Minh Hang.
