Abstract: The Vietnamese Newsletter is a bi-monthly publication of the Union of Vietnamese in Canada and the Association of Vietnamese Patriots in the USA. The issue consists of articles usually grouped around such themes as "Transformation of the South" or "Restructuring the Economy". The articles are taken from many sources; Canadian, Vietnamese and internationals. The aim is to present information on the situation in Vietnam today, efforts being made to rebuild and restructure Vietnamese society, and the issues of refugees. Other themes such as aid to Cambodia, history of the Vietnamese war, etc. are also covered.
The September-October, 1980 issue, has as its focus, "kampuchea looks to the future". It includes articles by John Pilger in which he reports on America's new Indochina war. There is an interview with Jules Savaria of SUCO on his impressions of a two-week visit to Kampuchea; a discussion of western aid and how it is being utilized; the role of Thailand in the Lampuchea conflict and a report on John Burgess' visit to the Khmer Rouge headquarters.
