Thousands of workers in HCM City as well as Binh Duong and Dong Nai provinces on May 13 demonstrated their opposition to the illegal oil rig in Vietnamese waters.

Workers at Tan Tao Industrial Park in Binh Tan District, HCM City, used their lunch hour to gather in support of Vietnam and against Chinese infringements.

They carried signs such as, “Paracel Islands and Spratly Islands belong to Vietnam”, “Unity is strength” and “We will protect our national sovereignty”.

Such protests have been reported in numerous locations, including the King Makerrong Company, located in the Vietnam-Singapore Industrial Park No. 1, and a number of Taiwanese and Chinese firms, such as the Shyang Hung Cheng Company and King Footwear Company.

These incidents were not isolated, and authorities asked that management make efforts to stabilise the situation so as to avoid any damages to persons or property.
