STOP THE GREENWASH! STOP THE F35S! LOCKHEED MARTIN IS A CLIMATE CRIMINAL.

Lockheed Martin, the world’s top weapons manufacturer, is the premium platinum sponsor for the NYC Climate Week events (http://www.climateweeknyc.org/partners-sponsors/). Lockheed Martin claims to be a “climate hero” but its fighter jets, bombers, armoured vehicles, naval weapons systems, and missiles are killing people and killing the planet. These weapon systems burn highly toxic, carbon-intensive fuels that disproportionately cause climate change. The most expensive weapons system in history is the Lockheed Martin F-35 Stealth Fighter Jet that involves 12 countries and is estimated to cost $1 trillion. These are public tax dollars that should be invested in climate mitigation and adaptation, green jobs and sustainable development.
We will rally outside the opening event of the NYC Climate Week – where Lockheed Martin is headlining. (http://www.climateweeknyc.org/events/climate-week-nyc-2014-opening-day see also: http://www.theclimategroup.org/what-we-do/events/climate-week-nyc-2014/)
Stop the greenwash. Stop the F-35s. No weapons. No wars. No global warming.
Cut military spending. Cut militarism. Cut emissions.
