Human rights group No Chain will be leading another protest in front of the Chinese Embassy in Washington, D.C., Tuesday, December 1st. The protest, which like the last two will continue the theme of “Free the Vietnam 9!” will take place between noon and 1 p.m.

The ongoing protests, Henry Song, No Chain’s North American director, said, “continue to highlight and bring attention to the nine North Korean refugees recently arrested by Vietnam and handed over to the Chinese authorities, and who are believed to be held in a detention facility in Tumen, China.”

Previously, the group issued a letter of protest to the PRC, and Tuesday another letter urging the Chinese government to not repatriate the ‘Vietnam 9’ will be delivered to the embassy, Song told us.
