RAYTHEON MAKES CLUSTER BOMBS THAT KILL CHILDREN
BAN CLUSTER BOMBS
Raytheon, headquartered in Waltham, is the biggest missile manufacturer in the world, one of the world's leading manufacturers of cluster bombs, and ranks fourth in terms of military sales.
COME TO DOWNTOWN WALTHAM ON THURSDAY, AUGUST 2, 5-7:00 PM
TO PROTEST THE US GOVERNMENT'S USE OF CLUSTER BOMBS AND RAYTHEON'S IMMORAL PROFITS FROM WEAPONS OF CIVILIAN DEATH, NOT DEFENSE
Meet at Waltham Common in front of commuter rail station (Carter St.)
Station is one block south of Main St. (Rte 20), just east of Moody St.
WHAT SHOULD BE DONE?
1.. US must sign an international treaty to ban the production and use of cluster bombs
2.. Stop investment in cluster bomb manufacturers by US banks and investors
3.. Halt Raytheon's manufacturing of cluster bombs
4.. Support legislation to prevent the use and export of these inhumane weapons
-- Specifically, tell your congressional officials to support the legislation introduced by Senators Dianne Feinstein (CA) and Patrick Leahy (VT) and passed 6/28 by the Senate Appropriations Committee and S594, the Cluster Munitions Civilian Protection Act of 2007 and referred to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and the Committee on Foreign Affairs of the House of Representatives.
