PRESS RELEASE

 

On April 30, 1995, the Government of Free Vietnam was established based on the desire of the National Vietnamese people to overthrow totalitarian Communism in Vietnam since 1975.

 

The Government of Free Vietnam continues to carry out its resolution for the national benefit of self-determination; which is intrinsic to the people who are willing to sacrifice their lives for the struggle of homeland liberation.

 

In Mr. Nguyen Huu Chanh’s presentation in 1997 to his party, stated that the policy of the Government of Free Vietnam is not to reconcile with the Communists, but to honor the National Flag as a sacred token of National Vietnamese at home and abroad, bound and determined to dissolve the Communist regime in Vietnam, and conduct a free election.

He has also called for the unity of all National Vietnamese and the support of all Political Organizations, Associations, Fronts, Movements, Intellectuals, all overseas compatriots and unified members of the Government of Free Vietnam.

 

Our government for the people of Vietnam continues to stand strong today due to our dedicated benefactors and politicians worldwide who have sworn an oath to protect our nation in grave peril from the injustice served by the totalitarian regime.

 

Those men and women who have dedicated their lives for many years and contributed their bipartisan political initiatives, to help better economic conditions in Vietnam must come together as a global community to rebuild our homeland and bring back our National Flag lawfully and gloriously.
