Provide better reparations to Agent Orange victims in Vietnam

3 million Vietnamese civilians, of which 150,000 are children, are currently suffering from exposure to dioxins deliberately released by US war planes during the Vietnam War. While US veterans suffering from exposure now receive $1500 a month, their Vietnamese counterparts only receive $5 a month. Considering America's fervent support of the Geneva Convention, it is only appropriate that the government compensates for the damage caused during this heinous war crime. The corporations involved should also not only compensate for their irreparable damage, but also face charges for their violations.

      As much as I appreciate the need to promote other petitions through the change.org network, could you please refrain from posting petitions that are not directly related to the Vietnam War and reparations? Thank you.

      "Follow your dreams of a better world, and keep on trying, even when there seems to be little hope, because it is the right thing to do. We may never know how the seeds of kindness that we plant may help others on their journey, today, or even sometime far in the future. But Every act of compassion makes a difference!

      I think it's really important for the people who were affected to be helped... Especially those who did this to them. Because of Agent Orange, these innocent children who most of them weren't even alive when it happened are being affected. THIS SUCKS! PEOPLE, HELP THEM OUT!!
