Political awareness is generally quite low among Vietnamese People With Disabilities (PWD’s). Not many seem to think of themselves as a potential political force, nor of the part that Organisations of People With Disabilities (OPWD’s) might play. Even the best educated know little about western democracies, organisational freedom, and the situation of PWD’s in other parts of the world. This is not entirely due to lack of education, but also a result of the fact that Vietnam is a fairly closed society, where official censorship is still in existence. Access to the Internet is limited; the government has set up a firewall that makes it impossible to access a number of homepages.
