This leaflet against Fluor Corporation describes the company as a key supporter of South Africa's slave labor apartheid system. Fluor is co-owner, with Royal/Dutch Shell, of A. T. Massey Coal Co., which is trying to bust the United Mine Workers at its U.S. mines. The leaflet says Fluor has had contracts worth more than $4.5 billion to build and maintain coal-to-oil plants for the South African government. Because South Africa depends on imported oil, which could be cut off by future international boycotts, these Sasol plants are a crucial part of the South African government's plan to defend the apartheid system against outside pressure. • Fluor Supports Apartheid • Fluor Wants To Turn Back The Clock In The U.S. • Fluor Runs on Public Funds
