On Australian Shores: Suzanne Sinclair

Episode One: Suzane Sinclair

For many years Magali and I have overheard others speak of the horror stories of trials and widescale use of herbicides across Australia, including Agent Orange which according to Wikipedia is:

"...It is a mixture of equal parts of two herbicides, 2,4,5-Tand 2,4-D. In addition to its damaging environmental effects, traces of dioxin found in the mixture have caused major health problems for many individuals who were exposed."

Recently we met with a number of brave people such as Suzanne Sinclair who have been forced to care for those who have been affected by these toxic herbicide sprays. Their personal stories are both compelling and heartbreaking and in Suzanne's case she lost both her partner Cyril Hunter and her Son, Nigel Sinclair as she will attest.

As you will discover, there is a hope that the Australian Government will not only officially and categorically acknowledge their claims but also provide adequate compensation for what many survivors claim is the most horrific of illnesses and death as a result of exposure to, use of or direct contact with these herbicides.
