Call to Action
According to a story in the July 30th edition of the Jakarta Post, The Indonesian government is considering a request by the government of Communist Vietnam to destroy the remaining vestiges of the Refugee Camps in Galang that were once occupied by Vietnamese Boat People.
This request by Hanoi once again demonstrates that the Vietnamese Communist leadership, though changing with the times, is essentially no different than the totalitarian regime of yesteryear. The Communist leadership%u2019s inhumanity and pettiness goes against the humane spirit of the Vietnamese people simply because the Communists put power and party above all else.
The pressure to destroy the historical remains at the Galang refugee camp and previous efforts to destroy the Vietnamese refugee camps in Malaysia shame the Vietnamese people, who are loving and benevolent by nature.
The Community in Australia has already written a letter to the Indonesian government regarding this matter. A number of other groups and organizations have and will continue to follow suit. The political significance of these remains are important, but their spiritual and moral significance pose even greater important in light of the deteriorating state of Vietnam today. Any person who is Vietnamese at heart and who is one with the Vietnamese people cannot remain silent. The minimum action one can take is to sign this letter, as a declaration against the unjust and appalling position of the Vietnamese Communist leadership that is currently in a state of metamorphosis.
Therefore, we call upon all who receive this letter to pass it on to family members, friends, and acquaintances %u2013 the more the better %u2013 to share in the righteousness of the Vietnamese people.

Re: The former Vietnamese refugee camps on Galang Island, a site that honors the humanitarian spirit of the Indonesian people.
Dear Mr President,
The community of Vietnamese boat people around the world was extremely saddened to learn that your government of the Republic of Indonesia is under pressure from the leadership of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam to close the Galang Refugee Camp, a site that serves as historical evidence of the humanitarian spirit of the Indonesian people towards hundreds of thousands of Vietnamese boat people. The compassion of the Indonesian people won the admiration and respect of the world.
The Galang Refugee Camp shall forever be a popular tourist attraction for domestic and international visitors alike. According to The Chairman of the Association of Indonesia Tour and Travel Agencies in Batan, the Galang Refugee Camp is provides a steady source of income for the local population by attracting tourism.
We, the community of Vietnamese boat people believe that Indonesia shall always regard Galang as a historic site worthy of preserving so that the world community may admire the charitable spirit the Indonesian people reserved for those who made the courageous journey in search of freedom.
The world community of Vietnamese boat people strongly believe that because of economic, social, and historial reasons, your government will make the correct choice and decide against destroying the remains of the refugee camp at Galang because of pressure from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam.
you have the power to create change.
Start sharing and watch your impact grow
