Video of August 6 protest against Bechtel Corporation, with an interview with author Antonio Juhasz, author of The Bush Agenda: Invading the World, One Economy at a Time.
On August 6, 2006 the anniversary of the U.S. atomic bombing of Hiroshima, about 120 activists marched on the Bettis Atomic Power Laboratory in West Mifflin leading to the facility being shut down for the day. The first-ever march to Bettis was part of three days of education and action to expose U.S. nuclear hypocrisy and confront Bechtel Corporation, the region's largest war profiteer, which has a $4.2 billion dollar contract to operate Bettis. Sunday's events were preceded by a well-attended discussion and book signing on Friday night with author Antonia Juhasz.
Video was shot and produced by Ron Douglas for the December 2006 episode of Rustbelt TV.
