Witness for Peace and Life at Raytheon
August 6 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am
Waltham-based Raytheon Technologies just secured a contract to develop the Long Range Standoff Missile, a new air-launched nuclear weapon delivery system that makes nuclear war more likely.
On the 75th anniversary of the atomic attack on Hiroshima, we will gather at 9am on the public sidewalk in front of Raytheon BBN Technologies for the Witness for Peace and Life. After a period of silent reflection, we will walk around the corner to Raytheon property where there is adequate room to hold a rally, with opportunities to introduce ourselves and offer reflections, meditations, and rousing speeches. At some point, some of us will move closer to the front door of Raytheon to deliver a Cease and Desist Letter to the CEO and Board of Directors expressing our concerns and outrage. As we deliver the letter, we will leave Raytheon property if ordered to by police.
There is plenty of free legal parking further down Moulton St. Bring signs and banners. We will observe all local, state, and federal guidelines to maintain social distancing while wearing masks. For other information please contact John Bach: (970) 209-8346; firstname.lastname@example.org. The event will go forward rain or shine.
Co-Sponsors (in formation): Mass. Peace Action; Campaign for Peace, Disarmament and Common Security, Friends Meeting at Cambridge; International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War – Boston
