Vietnamese authorities have increased compensation offers to residents evicted from land in Ho Chi Minh City in 2019. The residents, including political dissidents and veterans, were forcibly removed from the Loc Hung Vegetable Garden settlement, and their houses and crops were demolished. The authorities have raised the compensation offer from 7 million dong per square meter to 11.2 million dong per square meter. In addition, three new schools will be built on the property. However, many former residents have rejected the new offer, claiming that it is still too low and that the school project is a tactic to convert private land into public land.
