Vietnam marks independence day with prisoner release

Vietnam marks independence day with prisoner release

The Vietnamese Government has announced it will release 5,500 prisoners, in an amnesty to mark the country's national day. Vietnam celebrates September 2nd as the end of Japanese occupation in 1945, despite the return of the French as colonisers for another decade. The day also coincides with the official date of the death of Ho Chi Minh - the Communist Party hero of Vietnam's independence. But for some in the Vietnamese community living in Australia, they say there's little to celebrate.
