Human Rights Watch
Vietnam's human rights are doing poorly in all areas of it. There is no challenge to its leadership and basic rights like freedom of speech, opinion, press, association, and religion are restricted. Bloggers and Rights Activists can face harassment, inprisonment, assult, and intimidation. Police might use beatings and torture to extract confessions. People cannot do a lot of things without being punished in some way.

US lifts Vietnam arms embargo
President Obama went to Vietnam a few days ago only to announce that the US would be lifting the arms embargo from Vietnam. Though this may have seemed like a positive thing fir Vietnam, this did anger China. Even though he took criticism that the move takes away from the US, he did it for Human Right in Vietnam.
