Racist Past of the Fluor Corporation

Fluor Corporation is one of the five companies bidding on work to rebuild Iraq. It just got slapped with a lawsuit for "exploiting and brutalising" black workers in South Africa.

Lawyers acting for thousands of victims of the racist regime are to file a detailed suit in the US this week, which includes the claim that Fluor hired security guards dressed in Ku Klux Klan robes to attack unarmed workers protesting against poor pay and conditions.
