Vietnam Workers Protest Government Betrayal of Communist Values
Lam Quang Thi
In one of the largest recent public protests in Vietnam, workers are demanding fair labor practices and the worker-oriented values the country was founded on. That can't happen without democratic and economic reforms, writes Lam Quang Thi, author of the memoir "The 25-Year Century: A South Vietnamese General Remembers the Vietnam War." Lam resides in Milpitas, Calif., where he teaches high school.
