On the day our Federal Income Taxes are due, we gather to demand that our federal budget invests in true security – meeting the needs of people for housing, water, food, education, jobs – not militarism. In particular we focus on the Textron company, which sells cluster bombs to Saudi Arabia who is using them in the Saudi-U.S. attack on Yemen and its people. War crimes are regularly committed against the civilian population and Yemen is on the verge of collapse. Yet, Textron continues to provide its bombs for the war.

*From Boston take the Providence/Stoughton commuter rail or the Amtrak out of South Station to the Providence Amtrak station

From Connecticut take the Amtrak to Providence

From the Providence Amtrak station it’s less than a half mile walk to Textron. Walk down Railroad St. Continue on to Exchange St. at end of Exchange St. turn left on to Wesminster St, and then right onto Jerry St.. Textron is on the right.
