*No Nukes, No Wars* Support Indigenous Rights

... No profiteers! Support Indigenous Rights!

Ceremony and Nonviolent Action at Bechtel Corporate Headquarters in San Francisco.

The anniversary of the U.S. bombing of Nagasaki, August 9, is also the UN declared International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples. Since their earliest stages, nuclear weapons and the people who profit from them have caused untold suffering to indigenous peoples around the world.

Join us for a morning of protest and a ceremony led by Western Shoshone spiritual leader Corbin Harney at Bechtel’s Corporate Headquarters. (Western Shoshone tribal lands include the Nevada Test Site & the Yucca Mountain nuclear waste suppository).

Bechtel is one of the top profiteers of the war in Iraq, manages nearly every aspect of the nuclear weapons cycle, and is known by communities worldwide for its habitual violations of indigenous and human rights.

Please come and act with us to voice our support for the sovereignty and dignity of indigenous peoples and call for an end to nuclear weapons and war!

_______________________________________________

*WHY NOW?*

The culture of fear that surrounds nuclear weapons and even their suspected presence creates war and destruction. With respect to Iran enriching uranium, President Bush has continually stated that, "All options are on the table."

The paranoia over the possibility that Iran could develop a nuclear weapon a decade from now should be turned inward. The U.S. is even now designing new nuclear weapons in direct violation of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty while hypocritically pushing for another illegal war and possible nuclear strike against a sovereign nation.

On August 9th, we will take our voices to the people who design and profit from human suffering. We demand an end
to U.S. nuclear weapons development, production and testing. We demand an end to wars of empire and an end to nuclear excuses for war.

In Iraq, they never found nuclear or other weapons of mass destruction, yet the daily reality of death and destruction rages on, sparked by the Bush administration's invasion and fueled by the ongoing U.S. military occupation.

A majority of people in this nation now oppose the war, but the White House and most members of Congress are resisting the only solution to the crisis: bring the troops home immediately. We will send our message loud and clear to decision-makers and the public at large:

End the war in Iraq, No war with Iran or North Korea, End the threat of nuclear annihilation!
