*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*
