Medea Benjamin: Taking on the Military Industrial Complex:
The “Launch” of the Massachusetts Raytheon Anti-War Campaign

Come hear one of the U.S.’ most prominent war analysts, anti-war speakers, and activists give us insight into ongoing U.S. wars and what we can do about them. Medea Benjamin is co-founder of CODEPINK: Women for Peace. Her latest book is "Inside Iran: The Real History and Politics of the Islamic Republic of Iran". It aims to re-educate the American public to prevent a war with Iran. 

Medea will analyze our ongoing wars and outline a new strategy for stopping these wars focused on divestment from war contractors and the financial institutions that back them.

Hear about our new Raytheon Anti-War Campaign to oppose the Saudi-U.S. war in Yemen and U.S./Saudi/Israeli sanctions and threats of war against Iran. Raytheon is the largest war contractor in Massachusetts which provides various forms of critical support to the Saudi military – including the weapons and bombs inflicting a catastrophe on Yemen and its people.

Sponsored by Veterans for Peace/ Smedley Butler chapter; Massachusetts Peace Action, Friends Meeting at Cambridge/Peace and Social Concerns Committee; American Friends Service Committee; endorsed by United for Justice with Peace
