Fears are growing for the health of peaceful activist, Trần Thị Thúy as Vietnamese authorities withhold medical care for a serious tumour while she serves her prison sentence.

Act now to demand her immediate release. Send an email to the Vietnamese authorities today.

In April 2016,Thúy was diagnosed with a tumour on her uterus. The tumour in Thúy’s uterus continues to grow, and due to the pain, she is no longer able to walk without assistance. She is also suffering from painful boils all over her body that grow slowly to the size of a small rice bowl and burst. The prison authorities continue to deny her adequate and proper medical treatment, despite the real risk of infection, increased by the fact that Thúy sleeps on the floor of her prison cell. She has expressed fears of death due to appalling prison conditions.

Despite repeated requests for medical care, authorities continue to withhold treatment to pressure Trần Thị Thúy into confessing to “activities aimed at overthrowing” the state.

Such vile torture is a flagrant violation of Trần Thị Thúy’s rights.

Call for an end to this injustice.

Take action now and we will send an email to Vietnam’s Minister for Public Affairs, Prime Minister, and Ambassador to Australia calling for Thúy’s immediate and unconditional release.

Thank you!

UPDATE 08/12/17: This action is now closed. We continue to monitor the situation of Tran Thi Thuy and call for her unconditional release.

Thank you to the 3,000 people who have taken action.
