Rally against US arms sales and military cooperation with Saudi Arabia

*Thursday, Oct. 27, 5 pm*, MIT at 77 Mass Ave (main building)

Demand that MIT end its collaboration with the King Abdulaziz City of
Science and Technology (KACST).  According to the Oxford Business Group,
KACST has developeded partnerships with the two largest US military
contractos (Lockheed Martin and Boeing) and is a key institution in carry
out R&D in support of Saudi Arabia's military modernization.  It is unclear
at this stage whether MIT's collaboration specifically includes research
with military applications.  But given US supported Saudi Arabian war
crimes in Yemen and its abysmal human rights record, it is inappropriate
for US universities to be supportive of key institutions in Saudi Arabia's
military infrastructure.

Join us on October 27 to demand an end of US arms sales to Saudi Arabia and
an end to collaboratin between US universities and Saudi institutes that
strengthen the Saudi military.

Sponsors: Massachusetts Peace Action, United for Justice with Peace & AFSC
Peace and Ecoonmic Security program.
