Protest Trump-Raytheon collaboration that is destroying Yemen

May 23 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Raytheon Protest, Fresh Pond Mall, May 16, 2020

Saturday May 23 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Fresh Pond Shopping Center in Cambridge (right around the corner the street from Raytheon’s Cambridge plant.)

A socially distanced and masked in-person rally

Finally the whole story of Raytheon’s close connections with the Trump Administration and the war in Yemen were fully revealed in a 3 full page expose in last Sunday’s New York Times https://www.nytimes.com/2020/05/16/us/arms-deals-raytheon-yemen.html In addition Secretary of State Pompeo told Trump to fire an Inspector General who was evidently investigating wrongdoing around a huge arms deal with Saudi Arabia.

Join us this Saturday May 23th at the entrance to the Fresh Pond Mall to help keep these stories visible and to expose Raytheon’s role in shaping U.S. policy of supporting the war against Yemen. Help us spread the word about Raytheon’s continued partnership with Saudi Arabia in the destruction of Yemen, even in the midst of a global pandemic. The people of Yemen have been enduring famine and war for over 5 years. Now they face the threat of COVID-19 with a public health system that has been horribly damaged by war.

We will wear masks and hold signs 6 feet apart, maintaining public safety and social distancing. We encourage participants to make your own signs focused on Raytheon helping the Saudis destroy the health of Yemenis during this global pandemic. We’ll raise awareness by using the proximity of Raytheon’s Cambridge facility to emphasize that Yemen is a Massachusetts war.
