Blackwater USA plans to build a training facility, "Blackwater West," in Potrero, California, a small community in San Diego County 45 miles east of the City of San Diego. The environmental impacts will be enormous and have long-lasting effects, including loss of sensitive habitat, depletion of an already fragile and shrinking water table, groundwater pollution and more. People living in Potrero will also be exposed to noise, traffic and disruption of their quiet way of life. Blackwater is one of the most powerful and secretive forces to emerge from the U.S. military-industrial complex and one of the greatest beneficiaries of the "global war on terror." Destroying communities for profit at the expense of the environment must stop. Profiting from war and human suffering must stop!
