International Agent Orange Day 2015
8-10-15 – 54 seconds of silence/54 seconds of action
August 10th is the 54th anniversary of the first time the U.S. government used Agent Orange in Vietnam. Millions of Vietnamese people have died. Millions continue to suffer from cancers and birth defects which affect three generations, including babies born every day. Around the world, veterans of the U.S. war in Vietnam also suffer from illnesses and their children, from birth defects.
Those responsible – the United States government and the chemical companies which made this deadly chemical weapon including Dow Chemical and Monsanto – have yet to compensate their victims or clean up the land they poisoned.
In the 8th month, on the 10th day at 12 noon join people across the globe in:
