Rally against US arms sales and military cooperation with Saudi Arabia

Thursday, Oct. 27, 5 pm, MIT at 77 Mass Ave (main building)

Demand that MIT end its collaboration with the King Abdulaziz City of Science and Technology (KACST).  According to the Oxford Business Group, KACST has developeded partnerships with the two largest US military contractos (Lockheed Martin and Boeing) and is a key institution in carry out R&D in support of Saudi Arabia's military modernization.  It is unclear at this stage whether MIT's collaboration specifically includes research with military applications.  But given US supported Saudi Arabian war crimes in Yemen and its abysmal human rights record, it is inappropriate for US universities to be supportive of key institutions in Saudi Arabia's military infrastructure.
