Join the mobilization to protest the 18 May 2005 Halliburton Shareholder's meeting in downtown Houston!

WHEN: Wednesday, 18 May 2005; 8:00 AM

WHERE: Gather at the green space located at 1000 Crawford (Crawford and Lamar), in front of the statue of George R. Brown. March to the Four Seasons Hotel, 1300 Lamar Street, Houston, Texas

WHAT: Hundreds of peace, labor and consumer rights activists will gather outside the annual Halliburton shareholders meeting in Houston, Texas on May 18 to protest war profiteering and corporate cronyism as exemplified by Halliburton.

Come to Houston on May 18th, participate in the protest at Halliburton's annual shareholder meeting, and make a bold statement supporting Iraqi self-determination and justice for all! "Stop Halliburton's Corporate Occupation of Iraq!"

Halliburton is essential to continuing the war and occupation in Iraq and forcing them to withdraw their participation would shut down essential parts and motives for the war and occupation. Not only are their operations in Iraq depriving the children and people of Iraq of any sort of future, but also the billions upon billions in no-bid contracts heaped upon them by George Bush and Dick Cheney results in the further weakening of social services here at home.

Join us in Houston on May 18 for a lively protest against war profiteering and corporate cronyism outside Halliburton's shareholder meeting in Houston. Halliburton needs to be held accountable, not made more profitable! Creative autonomous action encouraged!!!

Sponsored and Supported by Houston Global Awareness, Global Exchange, Code Pink, Latinos Por La Paz, the Maryknoll House, Texas Fair Trade Coalition, Peace Action-Houston, Austin Spokescouncil, Witness for Peace, Anti-Racist Action, Progressive Action Alliance, Louisiana
