Yemen is Massachusetts’ war
Standout for an end to Raytheon/Saudi attack on Yemen
Raytheon (with plants in Waltham, Cambridge and other Mass. locations) provides Saudi Arabia with the bombs and technology that are a major cause of thousands of deaths and the physical destruction responsible for:
- A raging cholera epidemic with 2,100 dead of cholera so far and 900,000 infected
- 400,000 children at risk of imminent starvation
- Terror from the sky caused by 16,749 air raids so far – 15 every day
(sources: Doctors without borders; Save the Children; World Health Org; OCHA; UNICEF)
Raytheon’s bombs, technology and its 50 year relationship with the brutal Saudi regime have made this war crime possible.
Meanwhile Raytheon is pressuring the U.S. government to let it sell even more of its bombs to Saudi Arabia as its profits skyrocket. (Boston Globe 6/14/18)
As the host to this behemoth of the military industrial complex, Massachusetts is the technology hub for Saudi Arabia’s war crimes against people who have done us no harm.
Time to stand up for the survival of the people of Yemen and against the war criminals
