Tax Day Cut the Pentagon & Global Mobilization to Stop Lockheed Martin

15 April @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm

Sponsored by: CODEPINK, Pacific Life Community, World Beyond War, Environmentalists Against War, Raging Grannies, and more.
Where: Lockheed Martin facility in Palo Alto. Meet up at El Camino @ Page Mill (Palo Alto Plaza parking lot) 11:30am. March to Lockheed Martin facility. To join a carpool or offer rides from SF and East Bay, email codepinkgg@gmail.com.
Petition delivery, bannering, singing/chanting, “Cut the Pentagon Cake” We are demanding that Lockheed disarm and convert to making things that sustain life, such as clean energy and transportation systems. We will attempt to deliver a petition telling Lockheed to begin conversion to peaceful industries. Please sign.
We are demanding that Congress stop taking campaign contributions from the war industry and enact the Green New Deal to provide good green jobs for Lockheed employees so they don’t have to participate in killing. Half of our taxes go to war and weapons, and half of that huge amount goes to weapons companies. On “Tax Day” we need to look at Lockheed Martin– the largest weapons company on earth, with facilities in nearby Palo Alto. The war industry, led by Lockheed Martin, supplies the military, which is literally killing the planet with their fossil fuel-driven wars and military bases polluting countries around the world. Please join us to stop Lockheed’s war profiteering. Learn more here!
