Are these photos are a protest? No, not a protest. The photos you are viewing in this post are not created by a demonstration. This is the scene of millions of Vietnamese pouring into the streets to celebrate the victory of the Vietnamese football team at this year's AFF Cup. These are just representative images, in fact almost every city is in this situation right after winning the championship.
Statistically, 31 people died from joining these crowds on the night of victory. And by comparison, in Hong Kong with many protests taking place over a period of 7 months, the death toll could be only 12. But in Vietnam one night 31 people. How ironic.
Unfortunately, this huge number of people poured into the streets just to celebrate the victory, for their joy in a sport, not to claim the rights that were stolen. Nor can I hope for more because maybe they don't know what they should be enjoying & and these rights have been stolen by who.
