Vietnamese people’s organizations mourn British peace activist
Leaders of many Vietnamese people’s organizations attended a VUFO-organized memorial service in Hanoi on 3 December for the late British peace activist David Leonard Aldis, founder and Secretary of the Britain-Vietnam Friendship Society (BVFS) and a decades’ long campaigner for Vietnamese Agent Orange / dioxin victims.
Among them were Nguyễn Thị Bình, former Vice-President of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, President of the Vietnam Peace and Development Foundation; Vũ Xuân Hồng, President of the Vietnam Union of Friendship Organizations; Nguyễn Văn Rinh, President of the Vietnam Association for Victims of Agent Orange / dioxin; and Hoàng Văn Dũng, President of the Vietnam – UK Friendship Association. 
Known to millions of Vietnamese as Len Aldis, or simply Len, David Leonard Aldis first came to Vietnam in 1989 and was deeply moved by the plight of victims of the toxic chemical Agent Orange used by the US armed forces during the war. Since then, he initiated various activities in the UK and elsewhere in the victims’ favor, helping alleviate their pains, improve their living conditions and asking for American compensation. These included the founding in 1992 and ensuing activities of the BVFS, and the launch in 2009 of the website “Petitiononline” for signatures to be collected and addressed to the US President and Congress members, demanding justice for the AO/dioxin victims.
He also joined campaigns for hunger eradication and poverty reduction, education for the disadvantaged, and medical assistance to the poor in Vietnam.
Len Aldis was holder of an Order of Friendship presented by the President of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam.
His last visit to Vietnam was in late April – early May 2015 on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the liberation of the South and reunification of the country.
He passed away on 27 November in London at the age of 85./.
