Nguyen Trung Truc

HRD, Member
Brotherhood for Democracy

Nguyen Trung Truc is a pro-democracy human rights defender and member of Brotherhood for Democracy. He served as the group’s representative in Vietnam’s central region. Brotherhood for Democracy promotes democracy and human rights in Vietnam by providing human rights training and education to Vietnamese citizens throughout the country. Nguyen Trung Tuc participated in multiple protests in the aftermath of the Formosa toxic waste spill in 2016, which cost thousands of people their livelihoods along the central coast of Vietnam.


Vietnamese authorities treat human rights defenders as “enemies of the State”. HRDs are subjected to intimidation, threats, interrogation, harassment, arrest and routine beatings. Many defenders are victims of arbitrary detention and criminalisation.
