The local Vietnamese community is gathering in support of their homeland. Hundreds of people rallied Saturday outside the Chinese Consulate on Montrose.

They claim China is occupying Vietnamese land near the border and threatening Vietnam's sovereignty.

The protesters say they want to raise awareness and express solidarity with people in Vietnam.

Similar rallies were held Saturday in Austin, Dallas and San Antonio.

We called the Chinese Consulate to get their take on the protest, but no one answered the phone.
