Australian group seeks justice for AO victims

The Agent Orange Justice – Australia Vietnam Solidarity Network (AOJ) officially made its debut in Sydney on June 1 with the aim of supporting Vietnamese AO victims.

At the debut ceremony, AOJ launched a campaign to call for assistance to Vietnamese AO/dioxin victims and to urge US chemical companies to clean up the environment and compensate the victims in the Southeast Asian country.

John Percy, National Secretary of the Revolutionary Social Party, said that the war ended more than 35 years ago but many Vietnamese people are still suffering from the harmful effects of AO/dioxin sprayed by US troops.

Percy said AOJ is building a website at www.agentorangejustice.org.au to rally support for the victims and serve as a forum for everyone to better understand the harmful effects of this toxic chemical.

The Vietnamese Consul General in Sydney, Mai Phuoc Dung, spoke highly of AOJ’s initiative, promising to work closely with AOJ in the campaign to seek justice for AO/dioxin victims in Vietnam.
