Details

Tran Th Xuan is from Ha Tinh province. 

Tran Thi Xuan has been active in raising money for charitable causes and speaking out against pollution in the wake of the 2016 Formosa environmental disaster. 

Tran Thi Xuan, 41, was arrested under Article 79 (“attempt to overthrow the people’s government”) in Ha Tinh province, north central Vietnam, on October 17. The authorities have not been clear about the details of the charges against her. Hundreds, and perhaps a few thousand, people protested Xuan’s arrest in a mass public display of support in Ha Tinh. Supporters also held a prayer vigil in her honor.
