Rally: Stop Raytheon Arms Sales to Israel
Fri June 11 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm EDT
Rally to stop Raytheon arms sales to Israel
Friday, June 11 at 5pm ~ Harvard Square MBTA station
On April 27 Human Rights Watch issued a report finally documenting what former President Jimmy Carter told us long ago: that Israel has become an Apartheid state.
Specifically, in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, movement restrictions, land expropriation, forcible transfer, denial of residency and nationality and mass suspension of civil rights constitute “inhumane acts” set out under the 1973 International Convention on the Suppression and Punishment of the Crime of Apartheid.
Israeli laws and policies have created 2 castes: Palestinians and Israelis. But it is the Israeli military that enforces the ethnic cleansing and control of the dominated caste by the dominating caste.
And Raytheon military equipment and technology have played a vital role in Israel’s military operations, especially in Gaza.
Raytheon builds engines for the F-15, F-16 and F-35 bombers that have recently pulverized Gaza. Over the past 15 years and more, Raytheon weapons and technology have played a vital role in Israeli military operations against Palestinians. These include bunker-buster bombs, air to surface missiles, and electronic systems and radars for its F-16 and F-15 aircraft.
Join us on Saturday to raise our voices against occupation, apartheid military attack and to demand that Raytheon cease all collaboration with these crimes.
