On the occasion of the World Wide Knit in Public Day (1) Saturday, June 8, 2013, it seems shouldering to announce that the Association AD@LY at Montpellier has initiated a project of solidarity among knitters of Montpellier (France) and Dalat (Vietnam) in order to mobilize supportive hands for celebrating the marriage of the thread and needles.

So it is said! All and all in position to view the work performed as a wide wollen blanket of 300 sqm!

Indeed, to impact Women in the context of sustainable and team spirit development in the context of globalization, the World Wide Knit in public Day was launched in 2005 by Ms Danielle Landes.

Haunting legacy of Agent Orange

Morwell Vietnam veteran Colin Bermingham remembers the moment he was drenched with ‘Agent Orange’ like it was yesterday.

Pentagon ignored Agent Orange warnings

Agent Orange was criminal.

I am writing to add a bit of information about our government’s decision to use Agent Orange and the subsequent cover-up. In his recent letter, Mr. Meinhold documents that our Department of Defense knew they were spraying dioxin, a very, very powerful carcinogen, citing specifics from Admiral Zumwalt’s 1990 report to the VA.

In the mid-1960s, I was a support member to a team, led by a company president and comprised of scientists and lawyers, whose sole purpose was to convince the Department of Defense that spraying Agent Orange in areas that might be inhabited by humans would be criminal, a crime against humanity. We believed that dioxin was among the most hazardous substances known to man and that if “they” understood, they would abandon this idea. After several presentations at the Pentagon detailing the hazards, the team failed to convince and, shockingly, the decision was made to spray in even higher, more toxic concentrations.

Agent Orange: A Deadly Legacy

by Stephen Lendman.

Fifty-one years and counting! On August 10, 1961, America began spraying Agent Orange in Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos. Operation Ranch Hand waged herbicidal warfare for 10 years.

Around 20,000 sorties were flown. Other spraying was done from boats, trucks, or soldiers mounted with backpacks. Over five million acres were contaminated. About 20% of South Vietnam was sprayed at least once.

The event, co-organised by the Viet Nam Association of Victims of Agent Orange (AO)/dioxin (VAVA) and several other agencies and organisations, aims to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the tragic first use of AO sprayed by US troops on Viet Nam.

VAVA President Sen Lieut Gen Nguyen Van Rinh said at a press briefing that General Giap witnessed and thoroughly understood the chemical war on the country and he was one of the first people to back the establishment of VAVA to care for AO/dioxin victims.
