Medea Benjamin: Taking on the Military Industrial Complex
September 27, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Come hear one of the U.S.’ most prominent war analysts, anti-war speakers, and activists give us insight into ongoing U.S. wars and what we can do about them. Medea Benjamin is co-founder of CODEPINK: Women for Peace. Her latest book is Inside Iran; The Real History and Politics of the Islamic Republic of Iran; it aims to re-educate the American public to prevent a war with Iran.
Medea will analyze our ongoing wars and outline a new strategy for stopping these wars focused on divestment from war contractors and the financial institutions that back them.
The “Launch” of the Massachusetts Raytheon Anti-War Campaign
Hear about our new strategy to oppose the Saudi-U.S. war in Yemen and U.S./Saudi/Israeli sanctions and threats of war against Iran. Raytheon is the largest war contractor in Massachusetts which provides various forms of critical support to the Saudi military – including the weapons and bombs inflicting a catastrophe on Yemen and its people.
