(HANOI) - Agent Orange - our readers never go long without another update about this toxic chemical substance that was sprayed on the jungles of Vietnam during the American war there that began officially in 1964, and finally ended in 1975.

One of our writers who has invested his life as an advocate for the victims of this deadly chemical, is Len Aldis, the Secretary of the Britain-Vietnam Friendship Society in London. He has generated a number of articles and videos about this enduring problem, and was recently featured on a Vietnamese television program discussing this painful, ongoing health situation.

EDM number 1366 in 2010-11, was proposed by Jeremy Corbyn on 27/01/2011. Categorised under the topics of Asia and Military operations.

'That this House recognises the 50th anniversary of the use of Agent Orange on 10 August 1961 on the people and land of Vietnam resulting in many thousands of deaths and abnormal births; notes the continuing legacy today in Vietnam of 3.5 million people suffering from various related illnesses and deformities; and calls on the 37 chemical companies, headed by Monsanto and Dow Chemicals, to accept their responsibility for the use of Agent Orange and its consequences, and to make compensation to the Vietnamese victims and their families.'
