Agent Orange is a chemical the U.S military used during the Vietnam War to deny the Vietnamese and Viet Cong food and cover by spraying the herbicide on vegetation across huge areas of the country. This had horrific health effects on Vietnamese people and on Australian veterans and their families. Agent Orange remains in the soil and water and damages the genetic make up that replicates for generations. A hundred years from now children will be born with horrific birth defects because a villager drinks contaminated water today.
This event ties in to International Agent Orange Day
