106TH CONGRESS

2D SESSION

H. CON. RES. 322

Expressing the sense of the Congress regarding Vietnamese Americans and

others who seek to improve social and political conditions in Vietnam.

IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

MAY 11, 2000
Mr. Davis of Virginia (for himself, Mr. ROGAY, Mr. ROHRABACHER, Mr.

MORAN of Virginia, Mr. SMITH of New Jersey, Mr. CUNNINGHAU, Mr.
BILBRAY, Mr. DELAY, Mrs. MORELLA, Mr. ROYCE, Mr. CAMPBELL, Ms.
LOFGREN, Mr. WOLF, and Ms. SANCHEZ) submitted the following con-
current resolution; which was referred to the Committee on International
Relations

CONCURRENT RESOLUTION Expressing the sense of the Congress regarding Vietnamese

Americans and others who seek to improve social and political conditions in Vietnam.

Whereas on April 30, 1975, Saigon, Vietnam, fell to Com

munist forces and the current Socialist Republic of Viet

nam continues under an oppressive Communist regime; Whereas on June 19 each year, the Vietnamese American

community traditionally commemorates those who gave their lives in the struggle to bring freedom and democracy to the former Republic of South Vietnam and the Socialist Republic of Vietnam;

2

Whereas Vietnamese Americans also honor individuals who

continue the struggle to highlight the lack of fundamental human rights in the Socialist Republic of Vietnam on that day;

Whereas June 19 serves as a reminder to Vietnamese Ameri

cans that the ideals and values of democracy are precious

and should be treasured; and Whereas the Vietnamese American community plays a critical

role in raising international awareness of the oppressive regime of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam against its

own people: Now, therefore, be it 1

Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate 2 concurring), That, a quarter century after the fall of Sai

3 gon, the Congress 4

(1) commends the Vietnamese American com5 manity for its work in seeking to bring democratic 6 principles and practices to the people of Vietnam;

7

and

8

(2) applauds the contributions of all individuals

9

whose efforts have focused, and continue to focus,

10

international attention on human rights violations in

Vietnam
