This collection consists of 98 color photographic prints taken by
Ly Kien Truc, publisher of
Van Hoa, a bi-weekly Vietnamese
magazine. The photographs are of the 1999 demonstrations over the posting of a portrait of
Ho Chi Minh and the Vietnamese flag by Truong Van Tran, the owner of Hi-Tek TV and VCR, a
store in Westminster, California. Although the demonstrations lasted from January 17-March
11 1999, these images highlight only certain events. The images depict protestor marches,
activities, and arrests; Tran's and his wife's escorted return to Hi-Tek and the re-hanging
of the display; media interviews with Tran and his wife; anti-Communist demonstrations
during the Têt celebrations; and some political and organizational leaders.
