International Day of Protest
STOP THE CORPORATE INVASION OF IRAQ!

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 12 NOON
Protest at Bechtel Corporate HQ
50 Beale Street (near Market), San Francisco

While Halliburton, Bechtel, and other U.S. companies with close ties to the
Bush administration are raking in billions of dollars in "reconstruction"
contracts, Iraq is still a mess: the schools are in disrepair, the phones
don't work, electricity is intermittent, and the water isn't safe to drink.
Meanwhile, qualified Iraqi businesses say they are shut out of the
reconstruction of their own country, some 70% of Iraqi workers are
unemployed, and workers in state-owned enterprises (where the majority of
Iraqis work) are forbidden from forming unions. Join us for a lively, legal,
nonviolent action against war profiteering and in support of labor rights
for Iraqis.
