Duration – 55 minutes

We will be screening this documentary to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the ending of the American War on Vietnam (30th April 1975).

Chemical warfare is condemned worldwide, yet during the Vietnam War of 1956-1973, the US Defence Force poured nearly 67 million litres of chemicals over South Vietnam. The Dioxin found in Agent Orange continues to poison the land and destroy its people.

There is an estimated one million victims today. Horrific birth defects are still been witnessed, now, in the grandchildren of those exposed. Evidence of altered DNA? Or from new contamination? Independent experts have discovered hotspots where Agent Orange Dioxin has gathered. In Bien Hoa, 20000 people depend on the lake for their water supply, unknown to them, Dioxin levels here are 200 times WHO accepted levels, and the food chain is poisoned. But the United States refuses to accept this evidence. Despite recognising and compensating their own troops for related illnesses, they do not acknowledge any Agent Orange poisoning in Vietnam. They deny responsibility and refuse compensation. So, for the impoverished people of Vietnam the war continues…
