Dignity and Respect at Melrose Farms now! Farmworkers speak up!

Six months ago the WCCNY along with members of the community rallied in front of Melrose Dairy Farms to expose the inhumane living and working conditions that many farmworkers and their families had to endure.
On Tuesday, August 28 we are coming back to give a report to the community about what is happening now at the farm. We will share workers testimonies and demand action from the employer and local officials.

Demonstration: End Lockheed War Crimes

Thursday August 30th 11:45 AM Lockheed Martin, 497 Electronics Pkwy, Syracuse

‘The sound of children screaming keeps replaying’ – Red Cross nurse in Yemen
On August 9, a bomb made by Lockheed Martin killed 40 boys aged 6 to 11 when it was dropped on a school bus in Yemen by a Saudi-led coalition warplane. Eleven adults also died. Local authorities said that 79 people were wounded, 56 of them children.

CNN reported that the weapon used was a 227kg laser-guided bomb made by Lockheed Martin, one of many thousands sold to Saudi Arabia as part of billions of dollars of weapons exports by the US Defense Department.

Lockheed Martin is literally making a killing from killing, earning tens of billions of $$ in 2018 for it’s shareholders. Some of these profits are re-directed to campaign donations, including $10,000 to the re-election campaign of CNY Congressman John Katko.

Join us on Thursday outside of Lockheed Martin in Syracuse to call attention to Lockheed’s complicity in the killing of civilians around the world. We will call for an end to US arms sales to Saudi Arabia and for divestment from the war economy.
