Vietnam : sur les réseaux sociaux, des images de manifestations violentes contre des Chinois [Le Monde]

[ndlr] Le journal Le Monde et d’autres médias français reviennent sur la situation préoccupante du Viêt-Nam. Résumé vidéographique des manifestations des 9 et 10 juin dernier.

Des centaines de manifestants ont défilé dans plusieurs villes du Vietnam, samedi 9 et dimanche 10 juin. A Hanoï, la capitale, la police a arrêté plus d’une douzaine de protestataires, dimanche. Toutes ces personnes protestaient contre un projet de loi créant des zones économiques spéciales pour les investissements étrangers afin de relancer l’économie dans trois provinces du pays. Dans ces endroits, les contraintes fiscales et administratives seraient moindres que dans le reste du Vietnam. Et selon les manifestants, les premiers bénéficiaires de ces zones ne seront pas les Vietnamiens mais plutôt les investisseurs chinois. Au printemps 2014, déjà, des manifestations contre la Chine s’étaient déroulées au Vietnam dans un contexte de tensions entre les deux pays au sujet des revendications chinoises sur la presque totalité de la mer de Chine méridionale. Le gouvernement vietnamien a décider de reporter le vote de ce projet de loi. Quelques jours plus tard, il a toutefois adopté une loi restreignant les libertés sur les réseaux sociaux et interdisant les appels aux rassemblements publics. (Source : YouTube)

Vietnam passes cybersecurity law despite privacy concerns [Associated Press]

[ndlr] Alors que le gouvernement vietnamien est confronté aux protestations de la rue, il durcit une fois de plus sa loi sur l’utilisation d’internet, loi dite de la « Cyber-sécurité ».

HANOI, Vietnam (AP) — Vietnamese legislators on Tuesday passed a contentious cybersecurity law, which critics say will hurt the economy and further restrict freedom of expression.

The law requires service providers such as Google and Facebook to store user data in Vietnam, open offices in the country and remove offending contents within 24 hours at the request of the Ministry of Information and Communications and the specialized cybersecurity task-force under the Ministry of Public Security.

Addressing the Communist Party-dominated assembly before the vote, chairman of the Committee on Defense and Security Vo Trong Viet said the law is “extremely necessary to defend the interests of the people and national security”.

Viet said the law doesn’t contradict Vietnam’s commitments to multinational trade treaties such as the World Trade Organization and the Trans-Pacific Partnership, but he said there are exceptions on national security grounds.

He said requiring foreign companies to set up data centers in Vietnam may increase their operational costs, but it was necessary for the country’s cybersecurity and will facilitate the companies’ operations and user activities.

“When there are acts of violation of cybersecurity, the coordination in handling the violations will be more effective and more viable,” Viet said, without elaborating.

An estimated 70 percent of Vietnam’s 93 million people are online and some 53 million people have Facebook accounts.

Vietnam : YouTube removes « toxic » videos

[ndlr] Pour rappel. Article du 24 décembre 2017 sur le « nettoyage » de YouTube à la demande du gouvernement vietnamien.

YouTube has removed approximately 90 percent of “toxic” video clips the Vietnamese Government complained about in 2017, Minister of Information and Communications Truong Minh Tuan claimed on December 22.

During a conference on the ministry’s performance this year and its agenda for 2018, Tuan said that the Government so far requested Google to block and delete about 5,000 clips with bad content on YouTube, which is one of Google’s subsidiaries.

Of which, 4,500 clips were erased from YouTube.

The largest social network in the world and also the most popular in Vietnam, Facebook, removed 159 accounts smearing the reputation of officials and leaders or those posting anti-Party and State content this year, he said.

Under Vietnam’s request, Facebook also deleted 107 fake accounts and another 394 advertising and selling illegal goods and services.

“One of the highlights of the (communications) ministry this year is making Vietnam one of those countries pioneering in implementing measures to tighten management of enterprises providing trans-border services, particularly Google and Facebook,” the minister said.

“Vietnam is among those countries of which the rate of their (removal) demand satisfied by Google was the highest in the world,” he added.

In times of rapid technological development, Tuan said forces with evil intents would take advantage to deliver toxic information using foreign-based social services.

The mission of the communications ministry in 2018 is to improve mechanisms to monitor information on the Internet and manage foreign content service providers operating in Vietnam, while encouraging domestic firms to join the sector.

According to the Ministry of Information and Communications, the sector gained revenue of more than 2.13 quadrillion VND (94.9 billion USD) this year, a growth rate of 9.34 percent over 2016.

The information technology industry yielded about 1.7 quadrillion VND, about 80 percent of the total sector’s revenue.

Communications service providers were far behind in the second place, with only 352 trillion VND in the year despite growth over 2016.-VNA
