Weapons Inspectors Visit Lockheed Martin on Hiroshima Rememberance Day

neveragain.jpg
On the afternoon of August 5th, the Santa Cruz Weapons Inspection Team visited the gates of Lockheed Martin. Through art and diaglogue, they called on the consciences of employees to consider the implications of their actions.

Lockheed Martin plays a part in genocide by supplying the United States and other aggressive nations with the equipment needed to deliver Depleted Uranium munitions and other weapons used against civilian populations. In other words, Lockheed Martin profits off of the misery that war is inflicting on people around the world.

August 6th and 9th mark the 60th anniversaries of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki by the United States. The San Francisco Bay Area's Livermore Lab is one of the national laboratories that serves as the brain of the U.S. nuclear weapons complex, which today is developing weapons to support U.S. wars of empire and continuing to contaminate the air and soil of cities surrounding it. On Saturday, anti-nuclear activists will meet there to proclaim, "No Nukes, No Wars!"
