The second meeting to support Nguyen Tien Trung took place the 26th of september 2009 on the « Parvis des Droits de l’Homme », in Paris, France. Trung was unfairly jailed by the Vietnamese government on the 7th July 2009.

More than 50 people gathered on the Trocadéro Place to show their support to Trung. No one has been able to talk to Trung since his improsenment. We have no information about Trung’s health. Three months after his improsenment, Trung appeared tired on a TV. He had to confess his “mistakes” and swear that from now he would be an exemplary citizen. However, we believe that Trung is still the same, deep inside.

The meeting on the 26th of September was divided into five parts: The speech, the information session, the “circle walk”, again an information session and finally a thank you speech. The main speech dealt with Trung’s history and beliefs. During the information sessions, we explained people what Trung is fighting for. The “circle walk” was simply a walk around the Trocadéro place, sreaming “free Trung”. At the end, Nam, Trung’s brother thanked us for supporting Trung.
