A small group of Tucson peace activists demonstrated against war and war profiteering outside the entrance of Raytheon Missile Systems early in the morning of September 22, during the Campaign Nonviolence Week of Actions holding signs as workers arrived. Raytheon is the largest private employer in southern Arizona, and they have hailed Tucson as the Missile Technology Capital of the World. At their Tucson missile factory, Raytheon manufactures surveillance drones and weapons for armed drones, Standard Missiles and Star Wars “kill vehicles”, Mavericks and AMRAAMs, microwave crowd control beams, cluster bombs and cruise missiles. The activists plan to return to Raytheon in October with a new sign quoting the comment that Pope Francis made in his speech to Congress, about arms trade money being drenched in blood.
