AGENT ORANGE/DIOXIN
British friendship society works for AO victims
Posted: Jun 26,2009

The Britain-Vietnam Friendship Society (BVFS) ran a booth selling Vietnamese handicraft products at the “Coin Street Festival” in London on June 14 to raise fund for Vietnamese child Agent Orange victims.

Items on sales were collected by BVFS President Len Aldis during his numerous visits to Vietnam.

Len Aldis said that money from sales will be channelled to the Vietnam Red Cross to cover orthopedic surgeries or buy wheelchairs for AO child victims.

He affirmed that the BVFS will continue the struggle to gain justice for over 3.5 million Vietnamese AO victims.

BVFS has made an online petition to President Barrack Obama and US congressmen to protest against the US court’s rejection of Vietnamese AO victims’ lawsuit. The petition has so far been signed by a large number of Vietnamese people and foreigners.

"... From the beginning of the first century A.D., when the two Trung Sisters rose up to fight the enemy and save the nation, until now, whenever our country has faced danger, our women have contributed whatever they could toward the cause of national liberation.

Our people are grateful that our mothers from South and North alike have borne and raised our nation's generation of heroes....

Under the Socialist system, tens of thousands of women have become specialists in different fields and, as cadre, serve as directors and vice-directors of factories, leaders of farming cooperatives, presidents of People’s Committees, and general secretaries of Party Cells....

And so, the women of Vietnam from ancient times until now, from South to North, from young to old, are truly heroes ..."

(Excerpted from President Ho Chi Minh's speech on the 36th Anniversary of Vietnam Women's Union 20 October 1966)
