Merrimack, NH: A Walk from Violence to Peace

Posted by Ryan Hall
09.25.14

CNV participants in Merrimack, NH took a walk today! They began with a procession towards Elbit Systems, an Israeli company headquartered in the occupied Palestinian territories, Elbit is a manufacturer of armed drones among other military equipment. They stopped for a moment to share their feelings and some information about the victims of the technology Elbit systems creates before moving on to BAE. BAE is a top manufacturer of military aircraft, but specifically, they are a major beneficiary of the F-35 project, by far the most expensive pork project in history, with lifetime costs estimated at $1.5 Trillion, the F-35 has never flown a single combat mission due to consistent functional defects and design flaws. Money flows from the F-35 project into almost every congressional district. Pierre Sprey, the designer of the F-16 calls it, “an exceptionally dumb piece of Air Force PR spin” and “a lemon.”
