Vietnamese Farmers Sentenced to Prison for Resisting Eviction | Chris' Regional Geography | Scoop.it
A court sentenced four fish farmers to prison on Friday after finding them guilty of attempted murder for fighting an eviction squad with homemade guns and land mines last year.

Farmers are fighting back and I question the government in the actions of arrests for murder???  These farmers have transformed swamp land given to them into prosperous and productive farms.  The government states these corrupt officials are illegally and forcefully evicting people to take their land and will be prosecuted by the law.(ny time article/AP Press april 5,2013)
