Ladies and Gentlemen,

Southeast Asian populations have been present in South-East Asia for over 70,000 years ago. The people of Southeast Asia living here included our ancestors, the Vietnamese. They were courageous navigators who crossed the big oceans; left their footprints, and their way of life through many continents, such as Africa, America, etc., These facts are recorded by famous historians such as Malcolm F Farmer, Christian J. Buys and Sheli O. Smith, Chester Norman, Wilhelm G. Solheim, Peter T. White, etc.

During the ice age, prehistoric Vietnamese already left footprints around the seas and lands in the world. At that time, the Chinese did not even exist, let alone the argument Chinese territory. They, the Chinese, were only present around 2600 years ago; and the Chinese did not develop maritime way until the fifth century AD.

Therefore, in fact, there is no such name called the “South China Sea.” Besides, due to the many mistakes made by some inexperienced cartographers who inadvertently imposed the waters of the South China Sea into our Vietnamese waters.

Vietnam nation independently developed with culture, civilization Hoa Binh, Dong Son, as well as lowland rice harvesting the tens of thousands of years before the Chinese’s. There is no reason why our country would depend on their cultural development or influence. The reality is quite the opposite.

They, the Chinese, have the tricks of borrowing and copying - taking what others have done and claiming to be their own, as Confucius says: copying, not self-creating.

We present some old maps of the Southeast Asia Sea (see below map) in which the Vietnamese Sea is part of the South Asia Sea. There is no such thing as the “South China Sea” within the Vietnamese waters. The Qing Dynasty’s map only recorded their territory as far south as to Hainan Island.

The map was drawn in the 17th century by a Frenchman to correct confusion about the position and form of the Gulf of Tonkin according to Ptolemy's old maps. “Ocean Oriental” is “East Sea” instead (Source map: Water culture from marine activities - Vu Huu San)

Google maps only the waters of “Jiaozhi” (Vietnam), not the “South China Sea.”

From China's Hainan Island to the Paracel Islands of Vietnam at a distance of 200 nautical miles. According to author Vu Huu San - Gulf of Tonkin Geography & territorial waters

Due to the ambitious expansion its territory to Southeast Asia, China has mapped the so-called “cow's tongue” and claimed the waters around it onto Chinese sovereignty. With the name of “South China Sea,” the Chinese blatantly claimed the surrounding waters as theirs. This imposition causes the world's marine cartographers to follow the irrational approach mentioned above inappropriately.

On January 19, 1974, the Chinese Communist Navy forcefully took over the Paracel islands archipelago of the Republic of Vietnam. These islands have been internationally recognized since World War II; On March 14, 1988, Chinese invades the “Gac-Ma” Island of Spratly islands archipelago.

To expand its military muscles to control navigation in the South China Sea, the Chinese Communist Party has carried out a series of construction works and accretion of the islands captured from the Vietnamese people. The act of accretion of these islands was quickly completed with the supports of the Vietnamese Communist naval command of the 4th military region (see attached file: Petition and Emergency Petition (4th time) of Cam Ranh fishers in Vietnam). These are activities that seriously harm the environment and environment of the South China Sea as well as the maritime security of humanity.

We call on President Donald Trump for the interests of the United States in particular, humanity in general, to actively stop this insane acts of the Chinese communists and its counterpart Vietnamese Communist as well.

We urge the United Nations Security Council, the European Union, Japan, Australia, etc., to take strong sanctions against the authorities in Beijing and Hanoi; to order them ending their implementation of building military bases; to force them to fulfilling the duties of being a member of the council, members of the international community, not invading other nations, including Vietnam, Vietnam Sea, and Southeast Asia.

As long as the name of “South China Sea” still exists, China also has the pretext, the reasons for expanding the threat to the maritime security of the Asia-Pacific region in particular, of humanity in general. Communist China is the greatest threat to the world in all respects, a threat greater than that of the Islamic state.

Thus, Senators Rubio and Cardin have issued a bill to penalize the East Sea's aggression. The bill’s excerpt states: "Advising the President to impose sanctions and prohibit entry into the individuals and entities of the Chinese Navy engaged in construction and development projects in the relevant sea areas, as well as a threat to peace, security or stability in the South China Sea (SCS) or East China Sea (ECS); Prohibition of publication of materials describing the South China Sea or East China Sea as part of the Chinese Communist Party, investment projects in the South China Sea or East China Sea, or recognition of the East Sea or East China Sea merger.”

We urge the world cartographers to adjust, as well as to return the name of South China Sea back to the position of China's waters and not to mistakenly name it upon our Vietnam Sea map (see Attachments).

Our Vietnam Sea is part of the Southeast Asian Sea and not part of the South China Sea.

We, the undersigned, are:

1. Phan Thị Hồng – Year of birth: 1970
ID Card # 220716417 issued on 8/198/2014 by Khánh Hòa Police.

2. Nguyễn Chiến – Year of birth 1981
ID Card # 225172645 issued on 6/10/2015 by Khánh Hòa Police.

Representing the people of Cam Phuc Bac District, Cam Ranh city, Khanh Hoa province would like to present to you the urgent matters as follows:

We have repeatedly submitted to the authorities of Cam Ranh City - Khanh Hoa Province – Central Administration for immediate solutions in resolving of the incidents that Green Steel Company and Environment mining Cam Ranh Bay’s sand in Cam Phuc Bac district without a license. These companies’ works cause great damages to the fishermen's property; The troops of the 4th Naval Zone has sunk the fishermen’s boats and inflicted injuries to fishers. It has been a long time since we filed the petition, but we have yet to see any actions from the said authorities regarding the incidents. The delay of the settlement process has severely affected the rights and legitimate interests of our fellow fishers.

On 1/18/2016, at the “Citizens Reception Center” in Hanoi, we have been handed the official letter No. 326 / TDTW stating: "... Over the telephone conversation with the head of the Citizens Reception of Khanh Hoa province, the Khanh Hoa People's Committee has worked with the Ministry of Defense and asked the governmental directions; and the government has agreed to halt the sand mining project.

​Our people are waiting for the settlement of the Khanh Hoa Province and Cam Ranh City to compensate for damages done by the Cai Mep Environmental Company and Green Environment; however, nothing has been solved yet.

​About 9:00 AM on March 10, 1977, five barges of two said companies, Cai Mep and Green Environment, entered the fishery and aquaculture areas of ​​our fellow fishers. The organized-crime thugs were also present on the barges using knives, hammers... attempted to attack us. At the scene, we realized that the Marine of the 4th Naval Zone was assigned to assist the thugs too.

Now, our fellow fishermen submit this urgent petition to the local authorities, Cam Ranh city, Khanh Hoa province, Command of the 4th Naval Zone at Cam Ranh.

- Firstly: Immediately stop the illegal sand mining of the two companies: Cai Mep and the Green Environment.

According to Decision No. 1821 / QD-UBND dated 16 July 2014 of the People's Committee of Khanh Hoa province which stipulated in Clause 6, Article 1, the duration of project implementation is one year from the date of commencement of works. Then, according to the document No. 1760 / CV-V4 "on the relocation of cages of aquacultural households in dredging areas managed by Zone 4," the dredging began. Accordingly, based on the above two documents, the dredge project implementation period starts on November 5, 2014, and ends on November 5, 2015.

However, for some unknown reasons, document No. 5531 / UBND-KT dated August 24, 2015 stated: "Regarding the response of some fishermen in Cam Phuc Cam District, Cam Ranh city about status Dredging of sand causes environmental pollution," then Khanh Hoa People's Committee said that the Naval Command approved the dredging plan in Decision No. 1970 / QD-BTL dated 03/4/2014” and the allowed dredging period is from 2014 to 2018. In fact, the decision mentioned above of the Naval Command did not stipulate the time allowing for dredging, but only the "Dredging design blueprint approval, lowering the approved depth and adjusting the flow direction of the material port and the port of Armed Forces Zone 4 / Naval Forces." So, here Khanh Hoa People's Committee seemingly / arbitrarily lengthen the sand mining to help the two companies Cai Mep and Green environment to scrape the resources of the country to optimize their profits.

- Secondly, Decision No 1821 / QĐ-UBND dated 16 July 2014 of the Khanh Hoa People's Committee stipulates: Green Environment Company "when conducting the dredging, must set the boundary of the permitted area dredging." In actual practice, however, when performing dredging and sand mining, Greenfield did not undertake the demolition work, they took advantage of the failure to demarcate the sand for fishing and aquaculture causing severe damages to fishers (from 2015 to 2016).

- Thirdly, also in Decision No. 1821 / QD-UBND dated July 16, 2014, by the People's Committee of Khanh Hoa Province regulated on Green Environmental Company to make Environmental Impact Assessment Report to the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment. The school appraises and approves, and coordinates with Cam Ranh City People's Committee to work with organizations and individuals engaged in production and business activities affected by dredging activities to agree on the compensation plan. Usually relocated support by regulations. The environmental impact assessment has not been implemented by Cai Mep Company and Green Environment, because since the time of dredging, fishermen's aqua breeds of fishers Die a lot, causing extremely severe damages. Therefore, we think that the implementation of environmental impact assessment is very poorly done so the consequences for our fishers are so dangerous.

Regarding the implementation of the compensation and relocation plan for our fishers, this is practically impossible: our fishers have worked in fisheries and aquaculture for decades; It is a traditional business of the people here for generations. Now all the sudden, the Khanh Hoa People's Committee, Cai Mep Company and Green Environment co-operated with one another and forced us to relocate to another place. We ask the authority What the appropriate places would be? Regarding the compensation of cages, the majority of fishers did not get compensated; or the list of payment is so sketchy, not satisfactory at all. Who is the responsible party?

- Fourthly, we demand that the Command of 4th Navy zone paying attention to the property of fishermen: Do not to allow their squads to illegally protect the “sand thieves” in exploiting the sand; to use the processing to cause severe damages (killing shrimp, fish…) The destruction of the marine ecological environment will certainly lead to the landslide on shore and destroyed the homes of coastal people as well.

- Fifthly, we request you to immediately incarcerate all the organized-crime thugs whom the Cai Mep and Green Environment employed to violate the human rights, to threaten the lives of the innocent people in the region.

Dear, Sirs!

We recommend that the authorities to investigate quickly, to take severe measures against individuals and organizations who deliberately do not comply with the law.

From the beginning of 2015 until now, our fishermen families have lost shrimp, fish, oysters… worth of hundreds of billions Đồng (Vietnamese currency); and the fishermen have lost all the investment money that they borrowed from banks, from independent money lenders. We would like you to pay immediate attention to the current poverty conditions of our people, especially our children.

We only want to live and have the right to live.

Sincerely,
