WHEREAS, the vast majority of Vietnamese Americans embrace the yellow flag with three red stripes as the symbol of the Vietnamese American Community; and

WHEREAS, the current Government of Vietnam continues to harass, interrogate and arrest individuals advocating democracy; and

WHEREAS, the current Government of Vietnam has increased its human rights violations since the passage of the Bilateral Trade Agreement in 2000; and

WHEREAS, dating back to 1948, the yellow flag with three red stripes has a long history in Vietnam and is a broader symbol of resilience, freedom and democracy of and for the Vietnamese American Community; and
