Description
This collection consists of newspapers, propaganda videos and publications, and printed by-laws produced by the Government of Free Vietnam (GFVN), an Orange County-based group whose purpose is to dismantle the communist government of Vietnam and replace it with a democratic government. Propaganda publications and printed by-laws produced by the United Parties for Vietnam Freedom--an unrelated, but similar group to the GFVN-- are also included in this collection. Most materials are in the Vietnamese language, though there are a few items in English.
Background
The Government of Free Vietnam (GFVN), which is headquartered in Garden Grove, California, was founded in 1995 by Nguyen Huu Chanh, a Vietnamese émigré and former civil engineer. The GFVN's mission is to dismantle the communist government of Vietnam and replace it with a democratic government, as well as to fulfill the mandate of the Paris Peace Accord of 1973. The GFVN is representative of organizations, composed of former South Vietnam military and government officials, that have arisen in Vietnamese American communities and see to establish resistance movements both in the United States and in Vietnam.
