Jason Baker Fined and Released by Vietnamese Authorities

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals activist Jason Baker was fined $15 by authorities in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam for protesting outside a KFC in that city.

The Associated Press quoted Baker as saying,

Everyone knows Vietnam is not a place where you demonstrate.

. . .

I would do it over again in a heartbeat.

I would encourage him to do so (and maybe the next time he’s there, Baker might want to take note of the appalling human rights problem in Vietnam — or would that be asking too much of a “compassionate” person like Baker?)
