Little Saigon Protesters Call For Vietnam Democracy
|Little Saigon today: Freedom for Vietnam!|
On Bolsa Avenue sidewalks this afternoon a youthful, energetic crowd of several dozen protesters gathered, waved South Vietnamese and American flags, and repeatedly chanted their wish:
No, it wasn't for better pho, cheaper crawfish or more coffee bars with beautiful girls.
They really want: "Freedom for Vietnam!"
(They also thanked the United States.)
Countless drivers passing Asian Garden Mall honked their vehicle horns and yelled in support.

Earlier this month, Vietnamese authorities arrested--Nguyen Quoc Quan--a Vietnamese American in Ho Chi Minh City for allegedly plotting to disrupt that country's re-unification celebrations.
