Andover Rally.jpg
Raytheon is the largest supplier of weapons to Saudi Arabia for the Yemen War. Raytheon bombs have been used in many of the Saudi attacks on civilians during the war. Yemen is facing the world’s worst humanitarian catastrophe with bomb deaths, one million cases of cholera, and widespread famine.

Join Merrimack Valley People for Peace, Massachusetts Peace Action, Cambridge Friends Meeting, Raytheon Antiwar Campaign, Christ Church United- Lowell, and the Lawrence Friends Meeting for a rally at the Andover Raytheon facility, where the Patriot missile is produced.

Stop selling arms to the Saudi tyranny now!

“[T]he Pentagon is captured by the so-called “Big Five” defense contractors—and taxpayers are picking up the bill.”

— Sen. Elizabeth Warren, November 29, 2018

The U.S. House and Senate have multiple times voted to end U.S. participation in the Saudi-led war in Yemen, but have been unable to override President Trump’s vetoes. This month, the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) may provide another vehicle to enact these restrictions into law.

Rep. Denise Provost of Somerville has filed a bill in the Massachusetts House of Representatives, H.2349, to divest state pension funds from companies that sell arms to the Saudi regime. The State Legislature is expected to hold a hearing on the bill in October or November 2019.

Directions: Take I-93 to Exit 43 West, onto Mass route 133. Raytheon is on 133 immediately west of I-93. There is a traffic light at the Raytheon entrance; 200 feet beyond the traffic right take a left on Bellevue Road, leading into a residential neighborhood with plenty of parking.

Call 617-354-2169 or write info (at) masspeaceaction.org to arrange carpool.
