Members of Houston's Vietnamese community will be back out protesting this morning -- as the Prime Minister of Vietnam comes to town.Last night, 500 protestors spent more than three hours holding a rally at the Hong Kong City Mall in southwest Houston. They are angry that communist Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung is being welcomed by American officials, from President Bush to Texas Cotton and Energy executives.

Protestors say they are angry their family and friends back in Vietnam still don't have basic human rights, like democracy.

The protests start up at 10am in the Galleria area where the Vietnamese prime minister will be meeting Texas business officials.
