THE PEOPLE VS. AGENT ORANGE

Agent Orange Main Image

Description

English, French, Vietnamese with English subtitles

The Agent Orange catastrophe did not end with the Vietnam War. Today, this toxic chemical is used worldwide to control weeds in farming, forestry, parks, and playgrounds, causing birth deformities and deadly cancers. After decades of struggle and tragic personal losses, two heroic women lead the movement to end the plague and hold the manufacturers accountable.

In France, Tran To Nga is suing the American chemical industry for poisoning her in Vietnam. In America, Carol Van Strum exposes the continuing use of toxic herbicides.
