Pittsfield: A visit to General Dynamics

January 22 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am

General Dynamics makes launch mechanisms for nuclear missiles. The Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons makes that -- and everything to do with nuclear weapons -- ILLEGAL in its first 50 ratifying countries as of 1/22/21.
To save jobs and to save humanity, we urge GD and all nuclear weapons companies to convert their resources from weapons of mass extinction to green technologies and other pressing human needs.
ALL ARE WELCOME. Wear white coveralls if you have them. We will provide Treaty booklets and handouts for General Dynamics staff. We will bring signs, banners, etc. Feel free to bring your own signs too, and your organization's banner.
