06/11/2005 Rally to support the victims of Agent Orange
30 years ago Vietnam peace came back to Vietnam.  But 30 years; later, many families are still suffering from the effects of the American chemical war, which took place between 1961 and 1971.
 
Today more than one million people suffer from serious diseases, including different types of cancer and disabilities, as a result of the spreading of defoliants and herbicides, and in particular AGENT ORANGE, which contained large amounts of DIOXIN. 200 000 children are now the third generation of victims suffering from malformations and severe defects of the immune and the nervous system.
 
For 30 years neither the US government nor the manufacturers of Agent Orange have chosen to bring significant help to the victims.
 
In the year 2004, Vietnamese victims filed a class-action lawsuit against the 37 companies which produced the deadly defoliants (principally Dow Chemical and Monsanto), as was done by U.S. veterans in 1984.
At that time, the American veterans only obtained 180 million dollars in an out-of-court settlement. The Vietnamese victims' suit was dismissed by a judge in a federal district court in New York on March 10th 2005. The victims are appealing this decision.
 
In reaction to such silence, and to the suffering, the misery and the exclusion of these families, citizens and associations all over the world have joined forces in an international campaign to:
  • Demand that social and medical assistance be urgently brought to the most severely hit populations;
  • Support the present legal action of the association of Vietnamese victims of Agent Orange/dioxin, against the manufacturers of Agent Orange
  • Testimony for peace
Join us for an international mobilization the 6th of November, the week-end before the day of the american veterans, to make the voices of the victims heard. Rallies will take place in several cities.
