- "Since mid-2010 the Vietnamese government has intensified suppression of Montagnard Christians, indigenous people in the Central Highlands who are pressing for religious freedom and land rights. The government charges that the unregistered or independent house churches in which many Montagnards worship--which operate outside of the official Southern Evangelical Church of Vietnam--are covers for a Montagnard independence movement. This report, based on interviews with Montagnards who have fled Vietnam and on reports in Vietnam's government-controlled media, details the latest government crackdowns on Montagnards in the Central Highlands. Ostensibly responding to unrest in rubber plantations in Gia Lai province, authorities have in recent months reinforced the police and military presence in districts bordering Cambodia in order to root out Montagnards in hiding and dissolve house church gatherings. More than 70 Montagnards have been detained or arrested during 2010. In addition, government officials have forced hundreds of Montagnard Christians in public criticism sessions to publicly renounce their faith, violating internationally protected rights to freedom of religion and conscience. Those who resist and insist on their right to independent worship face beatings, arrest, and imprisonment. Some are arrested, tried, and jailed on national security charges, such as "undermining national solidarity." Provincial courts often hold "mobile trials" of people charged with national security crimes before hundreds of people, reinforcing the message not to follow unsanctioned religious groups. More than 250 Montagnards are currently in prison or awaiting trial. Montagnard Christians in Vietnam: A Case Study in Religious Repression calls on Vietnam's government to immediately end systematic repression of Montagnard Christians and release all Montagnards imprisoned for peaceful religious or political activities."--P.  of cover.
