A letter by KKF President, Mr. Thach Ngoc Thach Remember the demonstrations that were held all over the world because the communist Hanoi government violated the rights of our Khmer-Krom people? We have to note that the quest for freedom in our time is one that is based on the Universal Rights of humanity and that the basic fundamental freedom and rights is right every human being on this earth. Therefore, it is important for us, as Khmer-Krom to build our inner structure of our freedom movement within our very own heart and soul. It is a fundamental “Key” for us to fight denial universality of human rights by the such devious government. The past demonstrations were made possible by the commitment of brave monks, men and women inspired our ancestor’s vision; that is the vision of being leaders in solidarity, one that is moral core of the “power of the powerless”. It is the fruit of hope and an enduring reminder that it is possible for Khmer-Krom’s historical journey to follow its true course towards freedom and self-determination. Our worldwide demonstration lead by KKF was conducted to reaffirm our truth in solidarity and acts as a light to guide the way to freedom, peace and Khmer-Krom’s dignity. The quest for freedom is not only for Khmer-Krom but has engaged the world community as well. Terrible crimes have and continue to be committed by Vietnam communist government against the Khmer-Krom and other peoples in Vietnam such as the Montagnards. My dear Khmer-Krom! Freedom is the measure of our dignity and greatness. To live with Freedom, we must stop devious behaviors and the onslaught of aggression by the communist colonial government. To oppose the devil, we must keep telling the truth and the truth is the road to freedom. In order to ensure that our solidarity now continues and let the world witness our fights for freedom, we would like to appeal to all Khmer-Krom and Khmer worldwide to join and support our monks, men and women. Do not be afraid for we must overcome our fear of our people. We will not be able to overcome it completely unless we do together. The answer to that “fear” and to stop the aggression is together we stand with “millions of demonstrations” in the future. Our lord Buddha said, “No one can hide the truth”. The communist government is afraid of the truth that why they are using all sorts of “fear” tactics to overcome us. To conquer “fear”; we must learn not to be afraid and this is the true Khmer-Krom spirit. We must not be afraid of their “fear” propaganda and we must not be afraid of their oppression.
