Free Jamal Khashoggi – Respond to Saudi War on Yemen – Protest at Raytheon in Cambridge
Tue October 16, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm EDT
Why is Raytheon supporting the atrocious regime in Saudi Arabia?
The apparent murder of dissident U.S. based Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi has further exposed the murderous Saudi regime as one that has no respect for human rights and that expects to be able to get away with any crimes with no consequences. The media, Congressional, and business elite are embarrassed by their close ties to the Saudi dictatorship and are trying to distance themselves from this murder, but they are not yet taking action to repudiate Saudi’s ruinous destruction of Yemen, which it is carrying out with U.S. military support and with weapons produced in Massachusetts by Raytheon Corporation.
We call on Raytheon to stop doing business with Saudi Arabia until it stops the war in Yemen. In response to the Saudi war on Yemen and the U.S.’ continued to support for that war, we will rally at Raytheon BBN offices in Cambridge.
Raytheon supplies the bombs and military equipment to both Saudi Arabia and the UAE that makes such savage attacks possible and it has a close and essential relationship to the Saudi Military.
