AVIA TERAI, CHACO, ARGENTINA - NOVEMBER 2012: Juan Carlos the father of Alejandro Aguirre, 11, has had problems since birth that have prevented him from walking, as a result of a malformation in his legs. Recently, he has had an operation to address the issue. His father Juan Carlos and sister Gisela constantly take care of him. Their whole family is in direct contact with agrochemicals, as their house is continuously affected by aerial spraying of the fields, located just 500 meters from their house. The Avia Terai community is constantly affected by this fumigation from aircraft and crop dusting machines which do not abide by the legislation in force, and act in complete impunity and with the consent of the authorities. The products used for the spraying are glyphosate, 2.4 D, endosulfan and chlorpyrifos.
