Comrades, allies, and friends,

The war in Viet Nam was one of the most important historical events of 
the 20th century. It brings to light the heroic struggle of Vietnamese 
people against foreign aggression, particularly the US.

The Viet Nam Victory Coalition (VNVC), formed in 2014, is hosting a 
Community Event: “The Spirit of Viet Nam is Stronger than US Bombs” - a 
day-full of culture, education & history to mark the 40th anniversary of 
Viet Nam's victory over the US.

*The teach-in community event is on May 2, 2015, at MetWest High School 
in Oakland.*

Our purpose:

• Highlight the historical meaning and ongoing significance of people’s 
struggles for independence and against imperial domination.

• Inform and continue to educate ourselves and all whom identified as a 
part of this history; and to explore its relevance to the present and 
future, and keep a breath on the current strategy of the US empire in 
Asia and abroad.

• Connect and celebrate our humanity with music, poetry, spoken word, 
and with dialogues and discussion, panels and workshops, and share our 

Join us in solidarity with the May Day Rally on May 1st in SF (more 
details to come). March with us!
