ars do not end when the bombs stop falling and the fighting ceases. The devastation continues long after, in the land and in the minds and bodies of the affected population. As part of healing the wounds of war, Vietnamese survivors of Agent Orange, who still seek justice more than 30 years after the end of the war, will be coming to the United States to meet us.

Today, three million Vietnamese suffer the effects of chemical defoliants used by the United States during the Vietnam War. Tens of thousands of U.S. soldiers are also affected. The use of Agent Orange has caused birth defects in hundreds of thousands of children in Vietnam and the U.S. — the second and third generations of those who were exposed to Agent Orange decades ago. Agent Orange has had deadly consequences for the natural environment of Vietnam with the long-term poisoning of soil and crops.

While U.S. veterans have received some measure of compensation, after years of struggle, Vietnamese victims have not received a single cent of compensation or humanitarian aid from the U.S. government or the chemical manufacturers. Vietnamese citizens have filed a lawsuit to hold the chemical companies responsible for the manufacture of Agent Orange and to achieve justice.

For 30 days in November 2005 Agent Orange victims from Vietnam will visit the U.S. at the invitation of veterans, Vietnamese American and peace activists. The delegation includes:

  • Đặng Thị Hồng Nhựt (68) – a woman from Hồ Chí Minh City with multiple miscarriages between 1973 and 1980 after exposure to Agent Orange around May 1965.


  • Nguyễn Mười (22) – the son of a veteran of the ARVN (Army of the Republic of Vietnam) from Huế who has spina bifida as a result of his 59 year old father’s exposure to Agent Orange in 1970. His mother had two miscarriages in 1974 and 1976. His visa was denied by the U.S. government.


  • Hồ Sỹ Hải (61) – an army truck driver from Thái Bình who suffers from chronic hepatitis, gastro-duodenal ulcer, enterolitis, unstable blood pressure, and enlargement of prostate as a result of his exposure in Atopo, and Quang Tri between 1965 and 1973.


  • Dr. Nguyễn Trọng Nhân (72) – former president of Vietnam Red Cross, representing the Vietnam Association for Victims of Agent Orange/Dioxin (VAVA).


The tour is intended to:

  • Educate our friends and neighbors about the suffering caused by Agent Orange in Vietnam and in other wars our government has waged.
  • Build solidarity between U.S., Vietnamese American and Vietnamese victims of Agent Orange.
  • Achieve justice for Vietnamese Agent Orange victims by supporting their lawsuit against the chemical manufacturers and urging the U.S. government to provide significant and meaningful compensation. Sign the petition at http://www.petitiononline.com/AOVN.
  • Support the work of the Vietnam Association for Victims of Agent Orange/Dioxin.
