Voices: Stop the War in Little Saigon
Jun 18, 2004
Garden Grove and Westminster, the key cities of Little Saigon, recently passed a resolution to create a communist-free zone, clearly a symbolic act against the government of Vietnam. Anyone who is familiar with the Vietnamese American community and its politics would hardly be surprised by such an act, for vocal anticommunists have led or dragged the community for nearly 30 years. What distinguishes it from past gestures and protests is its air of dubious legality and that it is sponsored by second-generation Vietnamese American legislators.
&Mac253;on-Vietnamese Americans, and even many Vietnamese Americans, may think that the entire community is united behind such an act Ñ this is not so. Many have no wish to continue the fight against communism, but are very reluctant to say so, since an extremist element in the community resorts to protests, shouting and even violence to quell any such disagreement.
