The October 15 event were attended by Tran To Nga, a Vietnamese French woman and an AO victim, who lodged a lawsuit against U.S. firms that had manufactured the toxic AO defoliant used by the U.S. military during the war in Vietnam.
A documentary featuring the life of Vietnamese in intoxicated areas was screened at the event.
At the event, Nga introduced her book written in French entitled Ma terre empoisonnée (My Poisoned Land).
The ABV has worked to help ease difficulties of AO/dioxin victims and continue to support Nga, said its President Pierre Grega.
The association has also presented scholarships to Vietnamese children who suffer from AO-related illnesses.
The VAVA and a number of Vietnamese Agent Orange/Dioxin victims filed a lawsuit to the U.S. Federal District Court in Brooklyn, New York against 37 U.S. chemical companies that had produced and supplied chemicals to the U.S. military for its use in the war in Vietnam, demanding for justice. However, it was refused by the court.
Following the lawsuit, in 2015, Nga lodged a lawsuit against 26 U.S. firms that had manufactured the toxic AO defoliant used by the U.S. military during the war in Vietnam.
The Crown Court of Evry then rejected the lawsuit due to lack of authority to handle a case related to actions of the U.S. Government during the war. However, Nga affirmed that she will continue to pursue the lawsuit.
