Tran Thi Xuan : imprisoned for protesting against pollution

Une prisonnière de conscience à ne pas oublier.

Tran Thi Xuan, one of the female activists tried in Vietnam in 2018

Check out our recap of Vietnam’s continued crackdown on dissent in 2018. Last year saw an increase over 2017 in the number of activists arrested and tried, as well as the length of prison sentences activists received. As of December 22, 2018, there were 210 political prisoners currently serving sentences in Vietnam and another 19 still awaiting trial. We recognize that 2018 was one of the worst years for human rights in Vietnam in recent times.
