Participants at the International Conference on Victims of AO/dioxin in Ha Noi showed their support for Vietnamese Agent Orange victims.
The March 28-29 conference made an appeal with nine points, including one to support Vietnamese Agent Orange victims in their fight for justice.
The appeal also calls on all peoples worldwide to back the victims; urges governments and international organizations to assist the victims and help Viet Nam overcome the cruel aftermath of the war.
The participants said they would send this plea to the U.S. Court of Appeals, Second Circuit in New York to request justice for Agent Orange/dioxin victims in their lawsuit against U.S. chemical companies that manufactured the defoliant.
