Set Bach Free!

US authorities and the Just Energy Transition Partnership:

As global citizens concerned with climate justice and human rights violations, we call on you and your governments to demand the immediate release of environmental justice lawyer Dang Dinh Bach. He has been jailed for fighting for clean energy and he is innocent. You cannot support a clean energy transition without civil society, nor when the locals are being arrested precisely for leading anti-coal movements.

Set Bach Free!

Viet Nam's leading environmental lawyer was wrongly imprisoned five days after his son was born, for leading the anti-coal movement. Over a year has passed, and his desperate wife is urgently calling on us to plea for his release.

With Viet Nam's extreme retaliation on civil society, our massive global movement has a unique power to advocate for his liberty, calling on the US, a key supporter of Viet Nam's clean energy transition. They will sponsor a regional summit next month, offering the perfect moment to deliver our call to set Dang Dinh Bach free!

These campaigns work because Viet Nam needs less human rights scandals and more foreign investment. Due to international pressure, Ms Nguy Thi Khanh, a prominent climate leader and recipient of the Goldman Environmental Prize, was released days ago.

Bach will protest his innocence by starting a hunger strike in a few days. Let's show Vietnamese authorities the world stands with him. Sign and share widely:
