Nguyen Trung Trong Nghia, otherwise known as ‘Effy Nguyen,’ is a 22 year old Vietnamese video blogger, producing sharp commentary on social and political issues in Vietnam. Mr. Nguyen’s family has been subjected to ongoing police harassment and brutality, as the Vietnamese government increases its efforts to silence dissidents. Mr. Nguyen’s father, Pastor Nguyen Trung Ton, was arrested in July 2017, under the charge of “conducting activities aimed at overthrowing the state,” for peacefully expressing his views on Vietnam’s social issues.
