Raytheon: The Local Connection to the War in Yemen
May 21 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
The front page story in this Sunday’s New York Times laid out for all to see both the complete immorality of U.S. participation in the destruction of Yemen, and the major role played by Massachusetts’ very own Raytheon in the conduct of that war.
For five years a coalition led by Saudi Arabia and the UAE has been bombing the country of Yemen, routinely striking hospitals, schools, food-storage facilities and water-treatment plants. They are also using man-made famine as a weapon of war. Over 14 million people, half the population, now live on the brink of starvation.
The United Nations calls the war in Yemen “the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.” It has caused the death of at least 85,000 children under the age of 5 from starvation. One million people contracted cholera. Raytheon is a major driver of this humanitarian catastrophe. Join us for this Powerpoint webinar to learn more about Yemen and about the ways Raytheon helps make sure this attack on Yemen continues, even in the midst of a pandemic.
