The French centrist Radical party, which exerted considerable influence in Hanoi, had in directed the colonial government toward a policy of association with indigenous elites, which in theory implied respecting local cultures and society rather than assimilating them.
Governor Albert Sarraut was one of the main champions of this project. Following the arguments of historian Charles Fourniau,  one can contend that Vietnamese national resistance never abated over the course of the entire colonial period. The ferocious Can Vuong Loyalty to the King insurrection, grouped around regional warlords and mandarins, the most famous of them being Phan Dinh Phung , was only suppressed in , a mere two years before the outbreak of the First World War.
In , a new generation of young revolutionaries founded the Duy Tan League, alongside the man of letters Phan Boi Chau and prince Cuong De The year constituted a first stand against colonial rule. The Duy Tan launched a first insurrection, attempting to poison a garrison in Hanoi. Finally, in Cochinchina, colonial authorities dismantled a ring led by French national Gilbert Chieu , which had recruited young people to Duy Tan and to Japan.

Guangdong and Guangzi as well as Yunan, all provinces once subjected to French influence by virtue of their common borders with Tonkin and Laos, now emerged as threats to French colonialism, due to the presence of both Chinese and Vietnamese revolutionaries. Members of the Duy Tan League could henceforth launch raids into the border regions of both Tonkin and Laos.
In , two years after the Chinese revolution, the League launched a second insurrection that resulted in the murder of two French police officers in Hanoi, as well as in the attack of militiamen and soldiers, and the execution of several mandarins accused of collaborating with the French. Revolt also broke out in Cochinchina.
Armed with sticks and swords, hundreds of peasants rushed headlong to attack prisons and administrative hubs. Many of the assailants died of bullet wounds, and the protests were broken up. The global conflagration of was at first perceived in East Asia as a civil war among whites though Japan and other Asian powers would later become involved as well. The French authorities were not entirely mistaken: Phan Boi Choi himself confirmed that contact had been made between Vietnamese nationalists and German and Austrian diplomats.
Immediately prior to the start of the war in Europe, Vietnamese revolutionaries launched several attacks against positions in Tonkin, manned by both French and indigenous forces. All of these attempts proved to be in vain and led to many arrests. Faced with this recrudescence of armed opposition, on 28 March , the new governor of Indochina, Ernest Roume , declared a state of siege in Tonkin.
This proclamation was in fact illegal, for the conseil de guerre convened to declare the state of siege could only technically be called upon in instances where French troops faced outside enemy fire while this was an internal colonial insurgency. Yet its concrete consequence was that prisoners taken during the raids faced military courts with no possibility of appeal.

Each of these charges, or nearly all of them, carried the death sentence when they took place in time of war. Two other Vietnamese were sentenced to death for a separate attack on Phu To Quan. However, Vietnamese nationalists did not simply give up after this string of arrests; some rose up even after internment. A major revolt erupted at the Thai Nguyen penal establishment in Tonkin on 31 August Morale among the Vietnamese guards was already low, and they rallied to the cause of interned Duy Tan insurgent Luong Lap Nam and two of his comrades.
A massive escape ensued. A band of four hundred of these escapees armed with firearms then destroyed part of the provincial capital. A column of colonial troops and indigenous guards were called upon to quell the uprising. Bitter fighting continued over several months; only in December was the band defeated. Indochina also supplied France with some , tons of raw materials, which amounted to 34 percent of the supplies from all French colonies — this in spite of shipping shortages and the new threat posed by submarines.
By the end of the year, roughly 4, Indochinese workers resided in France. By the end of , there were , Indochinese on metropolitan French soil, divided evenly between 50, soldiers indigenous troops, known in French as tirailleurs and 50, workers. Indochinese troops were divided into seventeen battalions. Although recruitment efforts generally stopped short of explicit force, coercion, bribery, and embezzlement were present in many instances.

Mandarins displayed considerable zeal in recruiting, no doubt in an effort to earn the favour of colonial officials. They used strong-arm tactics to convince young Vietnamese men who were reticent to leave. These recruitments, featuring various degrees of coercion, provoked greater and greater resentment over time. This, in turn, spilled over into unrest, most notably in Cochinchina. In this southern part of Vietnam, hostility towards recruitment would take the form of actions carried out by secret societies in The Duy Tan League was aided in its efforts by two secret societies.
Vietnamese adherents to the cause had been channeled into another chapter known as Thien Dia Hoi Heaven and Earth. The Duy Tan League, which was close to the Guomindang, thereby had access to the funds raised by both secret societies in Cochinchina. It had also infiltrated and coordinated the actions of the Vietnamese branch, Heaven and Earth.
French intelligence seems to have altogether missed these underground movements and connections. The authorities saw in the growing unrest of merely as the actions of a few isolated revolutionaries operating for Duy Tan itself.
On 24 January in Bien Hoa, colonial authorities were busily recruiting for the war in Europe. The Heaven and Earth society seized the opportunity to harangue the crowd, which then turned on the notables. The provincial head intervened, which led to the arrest of a few agitators, but the next day, those arrested mutinied, seized firearms, and formed a gang of some fifty insurgents, who went about pillaging a village, before killing one European and one indigenous guard.
The group was dismantled when gendarmes and troops were sent in. Following an inquest, Governor General Roume extended to Cochinchina the state of siege that already existed in Tonkin.
