The most revolutionary thing one can do is always to proclaim loudly what is happening.

Rosa Luxemburg


Fighting for a Fair Society

The Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung is one of the six major political foundations in the Federal Republic of Germany, tasked primarily with conducting political education for progressive social development both at home and abroad. The Stiftung is closely linked to the German Left Party, Die Linke. Since its founding in 1990, the Stiftung’s work has adhered to the legacy of its namesake, German socialist leader Rosa Luxemburg, and seeks to represent critical thinking and democratic socialism with an unwavering internationalist focus.

The Hanoi office of the Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung Southeast Asia embraces a mission of supporting the transformation of countries such as Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, and Myanmar into participatory, socially just, and ecologically sustainable societies. The RLS SEA Regional Representative Office in Hanoi opened its doors in April 2009 and currently cooperates with around 15 partner organizations, including academic institutions, universities, non-governmental organizations, think tanks, government institutions, and parliaments.

➡️Huan and Nam from our RLS SEA were thrilled to join a 2-day training hosted by The Institute for Workers and Labor Unions. Despite the harsh weather that has bewildered central Vietnam lately, 40 delegates from 15 provinces gathered to learn and discuss about living wage as opposed to the minimum wage. ➡️In the context of the new Labor Code 2019, the EU-Vietnam free trade agreement, and the upcoing Trade Unions Law, it's vital that officers of all levels prepare well to better represent the workers'rights and interests. ➡️There were debates and discussions, experence-sharing and challenges to the status quo opinion. With a growing class of young labor union professionals, we believe that change is possible ------- #minimumwage #livingwage #rlssea #rlshanoi #rls #rosaluxemburg #vietnam #socialjustice
