Vitenam, Vissai: fishermen clashing with cops, as cement company threatens to destroy their way of life, free beaten prisoner from cop car “Fishermen protesting the construction of a port project benefiting a major Vietnamese cement producer clashed with police … with one man beaten as he attempted to get medicine… as many as 700 villagers attempted to protest the construction project…The witnesses said 64-year-old Nguyen Viet Nong was beaten as he attempted to walk through the police lines to get medicine. His beating caused the eruption of a broader clash between the police and the fishermen….“At the edge of the village, I saw many policemen blocking the road,” Nong told RFA. “I told them that I needed to go out to buy some medicine because I’m sick, and then I continued walking. One policeman kicked me in the chest, making me fall. Then they all stepped on me.” Nong said that he was then forced into a police car, but the car was stopped by the crowd after it had trav-eled about a kilometer. “They opened the door and let me out,” he said. “A village doctor came to check on me and told me that I was injured in my chest because of their strong kicks.” … people from about 400 families had gathered at the demonstration site to protest the low compensa-tion the government has offered them for disruption to fishing.“
