Raytheon: The Local Connection to Famine and Death in Yemen

When: Thursday, November 7, 2019, 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Where: First Lutheran Church • 6 Eddy Street • Waltham

For four years a coalition led by Saudi Arabia and the UAE has been bombing the country of Yemen, routinely striking hospitals, schools, food-storage facilities and water-treatment plans.  They are using man-mnade famine as a weapon of war.  Over 14 million people, half the population, now live on the brink of starvatation.  Raytheon -- headquartered in Waltham -- is a major arms supplied for Saudi Arabia, and it is estimated that between 2009 and 2015 alone Raytheon delivered $2.5 billion in weapons to Saudi Arabia.
