January 25 International Day of Action: No War on Iran

January 22 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

January 25 is the International Day of Action Against a War with Iran

Join us for a rally on January 25, 2020, the international day of action against a war with Iran and for an end to US wars in the Middle East and Afghanistan.

Our goal is to highlight the connections between the madness of wars and the profit made from wars and consequently the power of the Military-Industrial Complex as well as the connections between these wars and unmet urgent local social needs.

Therefore, we are planning to hold a rally outside the L3 Harris plant in Northampton on Jan 25 at 12:30 PM  calling for ending US wars in the ME and Afghanistan, no war with Iran  and for diverting public funds from wars and the military-industrial complex to social needs such as health care for all,  housing, education, student debt and green economy.

L3Harris Technologies specializes in surveillance solutions, microwave weaponry, and electronic warfare. It is among the top ten defense contractor in the world with a revenue of US$17 billion and number of employees 50,000. See: https://www.gazettenet.com/L3Harris-merger-and-Northampton-27044490
