Anti-nuke conference supports Agent Orange victims

Support for Vietnamese Agent Orange victims was emphasized at the 2008 World Conference Against A&H Bombs, held in Hiroshima and Nagasaki on August 3-9.
Speakers at various plenary sessions and workshops expressed symphathy with the victims of the dioxin-rich chemical Agent Orange used by US forces during the Vietnam war, and demanded that the US compensate for the victims’ losses and sufferings.

Further actions in support of the victims.was called for in the Conference’s final declaration.
During the Vietnam war, especially from 1961 to 1971, US forces sprayed over South Vietnam about 80 million liters of different kinds of herbicides. 65% of these was Agent Orange, a compound of 2,4-D and 2,4,5-T containing dioxin, till now the most toxic substance on earth. According to American scientists, the total amount of dioxin sprayed over South Vietnam was estimated at 366-600 kg.
Three million Vietnamese have fallen victim to Agent Orange, subject to fatal diseases, especially cancers. Hundreds of thousands have died, or are living in agony; many of their offsprings have been born with birth defects.
About 33,340 acres of crops, 3,004,000 acres of forestland and mangroves were destroyed. Large areas of land are still arid and uncultivable. Environmental destruction resulted in severe flooding, salt water invasion, and weed and pests growth for many years.
The Vietnamese people and Government have made great efforts to solve those problems, but very much remains to be done.
The US has paid billions of US$ as compensation for its Vietnam war veterans affected by Agent Orange, but still turns a deaf ear to the same request raised by Vietnamese victims./.
