Dr. Nguyen Dan Que (born 1943/1944, also known as Nguyen Chau) is a Vietnameseendocrinologist and pro-democracy campaigner. He is one of the leading dissidents against the communist government in Vietnam.
Que's political activism dates back to the 1970s. He was first arrested in 1978, for criticising the Government. Following a period in prison without trial, Que was released and set up the High Tide Humanists group, which, according to Human Rights Watch, was a non-violent protest group aimed at bringing about social reform in Vietnam. Que was imprisoned again from 1990 to 1998. Human Rights Watch says that from then until 2003 he was under "virtual house arrest".
