Organizer/AuthorLori Nairne
INVEST IN CARING, NOT KILLING: Part of the week of protest against Bechtel. Men's participation welcome. Endorsers welcome. Permit application in progress. Women pay the highest price for the real "axis of evil": war, privization and globalization. Bechtel profits from all three. Women are central to the fight against Bechtel and are holding it accountable for its crimes. Everywhere women struggle to make up for the devastation, suffering and loss of resources, health care, welfare, education and other life-giving services, cut or privatized to pay for war and occupations. While Bechtel profits from water privitization, women in the Global South can spend up to five hours a day carrying water and fuel. While Bechtel profits from arms dealing, women suffer when every precious life is destroyed and are left to care for the sick and to scrape out a living on the polluted land.
