Tucson Protests for Peace, Against Raytheon

Posted by Erin Bechtol

by Felice Cohen-Joppa // Part of the Campaign Nonviolence Week of Actions 

Tucson peace activists vigiled at Raytheon Missile Systems on September 18 from 7 – 8 a.m. to say YES to peace and NO to war profiteering. They held signs and banners as a steady stream  of some of Raytheon’s 12,000 workers arrived at the missile plant. Some workers waved and flashed peace signs as they drove by, and others expressed disapproval. Standard missiles, Star Wars “kill vehicles”, Mavericks, AMRAAMs, microwave crowd control beams, pilotless drones and cluster bombs are all built there, as well as the Tomahawk cruise missiles the U.S. has used against Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, the Balkans and elsewhere. A year ago, Raytheon was awarded a $900 million 3-4 year contract to develop the nation’s next generation of air-launched nuclear cruise missiles.
