Event Type Protest
Women pay the higest price for the real 'axis of evil': war, privatization and globalization and Bechtel profits from all three. Women are central to the fight against Bechtel and areholding it accountable for it's crimes. Bechtel: -armed Iraq with biological, chemical, nuclear weapons -built nearly half the nuclear power plants in the world -received $680 million contract from Bush to 're-build' Iraq -privatised the water in Bolivia, pushing the price up by %300, denying water as a basic right and prompting a vindictive $25million law suit against the governent of Bolivia -threatens to destroy the lands of the Shoshone people and the helath of million in Nevada and Arizona -is one of the top four beneficiaries of "corporate welfare" Everywhere women struggle to make up for the devastation, suffering and loss of resources, healthccare, welfare and other life giving services cut or privatized to pay for war. Come to our weekly picket and speakout at Bechtel.
