Raytheon, headquartered right here in Massachusetts, is one of the largest arms manufacturers in the world and is a leading sponsor of the Walk for Hunger in Boston. At the same time they are a major supplier of bombs to Saudi Arabia whose 4 year war in Yemen has created the worst famine in the world today.

We need to expose this hypocrisy and demand that Raytheon cease all weapons sales to Saudi war criminals.

A coalition led by Saudi Arabia, and supported by the United States, has been bombing the country of Yemen, routinely striking hospitals, schools, food storage facilities, and water treatment plants. They are using man-made famine as a weapon of war. 14 million people, half the population now lives on the brink of starvation.

Sign up now to support the Walk for Hunger and to stand against Raytheon-supported starvation in Yemen!
