Meeting for Worship Outside Raytheon

Sun June 18, 2023 @ 10:45 am - 11:45 am EDT

Quaker Witness at Raytheon, Cambridge, MA

In connection to the mission of the Golden Rule and in witness to the Quaker Peace Testimony, Friends Meeting at Cambridge (FMC) holds a silent monthly meeting for worship in front of the Cambridge office of Raytheon Technologies, the second largest producer of weapons and the largest producer of guided missiles. We stress that this is not a demonstration or protest, and we are not politicizing our spirituality but rather bringing our Light to a barbaric assault on human dignity and life. Located at 10 Moulton Street, the Cambridge office focuses on acoustical research enhancing military weapons and operations.

During our silent worship we display signs stating “Quakers Praying for Peace”, “Raytheon Thrives on War”, and “Humanity Thrives on Peace” and a banner emblazoned with “Quakers Standing for Universal Justice and Enduring Peace – Friends Meeting at Cambridge”. We will gather on both sides of Concord Avenue in front of the Raytheon site at the intersection with Moulton Street. Parking can be found on Moulton Street. There will be limited carpools from FMC (5 Longfellow Park) at 10:30 am.

Several people at the Raytheon witness will be travelling to the Golden Rule events in Boston. For more information contact Ian Harrington at peace@FMCQuaker.org.
