Rallies in Washington DC to protest China's violation of Vietnamese waters

Hundreds of Vietnamese people living in Washington D.C and surrounding areas on May 18 gathered in front of the Chinese Embassy to protest China’s illegal placement of the Haiyang Shiyou-981 drilling rig in Vietnam’s exclusive economic zone and continental shelf. 
David Huy Ho, President of the Vietnamese Entrepreneurs’ Association in the US and head of the organising board, told Vietnam News Agency’s correspondents that in addition to the demonstration, the Vietnamese Entrepreneurs’ Association also set up a website in English language spread the word about the illegality of China’s nine-dotted line in the East Sea. 
The association also plans to collect 100,000 signatures to send to the US Congress to oppose the line, he stated.
