In February 2001, several thousand members of indigenous minorities from Vietnam's Central Highlands, often collectively known as Montagnards, held a series of largely peaceful demonstration calling for independence, return of ancestral lands, and religious freedom.

In the weeks and months following the demonstration, authorities arrested hudreds of highlanders, sometimes using torture to elicit confessions and public statements of remorse by protest organizers.
