For all documents in Vietnamese related to some important essays of this section, please go to the Little Saigon – Seattle page. That page organized by VietSoul:21 reveals important activities carried out over three years in relations to community issues of Little Saigon in Seattle, WA. Our focal emphasis is to foreground the negative and serious impact of gentrification not only on Little Saigon section located next to Chinatown/International District of the South Downtown, but also its stretching toward a Vietnamese physical location on Martin Luther King Jr. Way in the Southern Seattle region.
We post all information on Little Saigon – Seattle page to (1) explicitly specify all deeds of our grassroots activism, and (2) partially express our gratitude to the quiet yet courageous concern in action of the silent majority. The faceless silent majority does not occupy any famous names, self-claimed groups, or token representatives. This concern in action was indeed grounded in sources not from factions and parties, parochial cliques, or unquestioning conformity–which, inevitably, induce confusing and ambiguous socio-political engagement–and embedded long-standing personal resentment in and beyond the community.
The three-year mobilization for a common cause and without profiteering motive ended with success and led to the demise of the 300-million Dearborn Mall project at Goodwill site. Such positive outcome does not belong to any single individual but the anonymous folks who were not desiring prospective honor or award. Thank you all.
