PETITION

Message of SOS !!!

Please SAVE OUR SEAS / Rivers / Environment / the life+survival of Vietnam / the health and safety of Canadians.

HUNDREDS OF TONS OF DEAD FISH HAVE BEEN WASHED ASHORE ALONG 200 KM / 125 MILES+ OF VIETNAMESE COASTLINE.

ARE WE ALLOWING, IMPORTING + CONSUMING DEAD POISONED FISH + PRODUCTS IN CANADA AND ACROSS THE GLOBE?

It is with grave concern yet with illuminating hope that we start this petition and ask for your help.

Please sign and forward this petition to your families, friends, neighbours, colleagues, MP's and MPP's.

We request for your kind support and signatures, to further broadcast this disaster to World Leaders.

This petition will be forwarded to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. 

We implore you to champion the plight of the Vietnamese people, and also the health and safety of Canadians.

It is with dire URGENCY that we would like to draw your attention to an ENVIRONMENTAL - HEALTH imminent DISASTER of horrific proportion, and thus to request your voice in saving the environment and Vietnamese people from certain extinction / genocide. We need to raise our collective voices and to continue with our well-respected Canadian tradition of Truth, Democracy and Justice.

The issues are complex, but succinctly illustrated through NUMEROUS online-internet articles, and links below.

On the verge of irreversible destruction, the Vietnamese oceanic and river environments are being threatened, mainly along the Vietnamese coast in the Central region and surrounding the Mekong Delta toward the South.

The Vietnamese coastal and interior / upriver life, aquatic as well as human, is being concurrently subjected to multiple iatrogenic sources of unprecedented environmental poisoning, namely

1/ inland/coastal - industrial pollution produced by irresponsible multinational manufacturers / chemical and industrial plants which remained largely uncontrolled / unregulated by the corrupted current government.

2/ offshore -  pollution and destruction of oceanic ecosystems, caused by oil drilling and imperialistic "land reclamation projects" involving illegal invasion / occupation / land filling / militarization of Vietnamese coastal  islands by foreign nation.

3/ in Southern Vietnam, the once lively Mekong river and delta system, which with its rich fertile land and busy water ways, are being destroyed / dried up / choked upstream by irresponsible hydro-electric dam projects, by upstream foreign nation.

Please Save Our Seas / Rivers / Environment / Vietnam / Health and Safety of Canadians

Unprecedented fish kills have been discovered along the beaches of four central coastal provinces, namely Ha Tinh, Quang Tri, Quang Binh and Hue. Among the dead fish are not only small, shallow water fish, but also rare species living in deep water and far offshore.

The Mekong Delta is facing its worst drought in recent history, causing food and water shortages for over half a million people ... massive drought that has damaged 160,000 hectares (approximately 620 square miles) of rice in the Mekong Delta, left 600,000 people facing drinking water shortages, and resulted in losses of over $220 million. Vietnamese officials say El Nino is partly to blame, along with excessive construction of more than 10 hydropower dams on the upper stream of the river.
In an aggressive game of water diplomacy, China has gained enormous leverage over downstream countries by taking control over their primary water sources.
