DAY OF DIRECT ACTION
MARCH 20, 2003 - National call to action for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer community to oppose the war on Iraq.
OPERATION: ZAP HALLIBURTON
Today, March 20, 2003, queer antiwar activists call on our community to resist George Bush's war for oil and to apply pressure to the greedy corporations that built him up. The corporation who deserves most of our contempt is oil giant Halliburton, whose board Dick Cheney was a member of and who really calls the shots in Washington DC. Halliburton, through their subsidiary Kellogg, Brown, and Root (KBR), stand to make a KILLING off of the war.
WE SAY STOP THE DRILLING, STOP THE KILLING!!!
NO BLOOD FOR OIL! OIL AND GOVERNMENT DON'T MIX!!!
KBR has an open-ended contract to provide logistical support to the U.S. military around the world, and reportedly is in line to put out flaming oil wells should Saddam set them afire. Halliburton was the second largest contributor to the Bush campaign, chipping in 9,000.
The main weasel that connects KBR/Halliburton to the Bush regime is a retired general named Charles ("Chuck) E. Dominy, KBR/Halliburton's lobbyist and Vice President of Governmental Affairs, whom (not surprisingly) is a player in BIPAC. BIPAC stands for Business Industry Political Action Committee, who's motto is "Electing Business to Congress".
Well, Chucky, QUEERS SAY NO BUSINESS AS USUAL.
Zap Chucky's office and give them a headache worthy of collaborators to the killing machine.
Call, fax, and email. Think about the lives that will be lost in Iraq. Think about the dismantling of democracy here at home. Then call, fax, and email again.
While your at it, call up KBR/Halliburton and/or fax them and let them know what you think of big business hijacking democracy and killing for greed and domination.
