On August 10, 2019, Vu He was detained for hours after demonstrating against China’s activities at Vanguard Bank, which is situated within Vietnam’s Exclusive economic zone at the Nguyen Chi Thanh intersection. His demonstration lasted only 40 minutes, due to public security's intervention. After he went back to his accommodation, security forces took him to the police station for interrogation, leaving his son alone without his father’s care.
Before releasing him, public security reminded him to ask for permission before demonstrations and to demonstrate in the “right places." However, they refused to reveal what those “right places” are.
