The War Machine Reveled: Bechtel Corporation-Merchant of Death

From Hiroshima & Nagasaki to Yucca Mountain to the Middle East, Bechtel has reaped human, environmental and community devastation. Besides being the world’s largest engineering firm and #1 nuclear profiteer, Bechtel is a leading beneficiary of the Iraq war and corporate globalization policies. Bechtel “connects the dots” for the anti-nuke, anti-war and global justice movements! Through its sordid corporate history and 100 years of revolving-door relationships with government, Bechtel illustrates the connections between profiteering and war, between nuclear power and nuclear weapons proliferation, between “free trade” and the exploitation of indigenous peoples, and between corporate power-brokers and decision-makers at the highest levels of government.

Gather at the Federal Building, Front and Broadway, 11:30 a.m. We will proceed through the downtown area and arrive at Bechtel’s office at 1230 Columbia at 12:15 p.m.
