About 75 people gathered in Valley Forge, PA at Lockheed Martin on January 16 for a Martin Luther King Day of Nonviolent Resistance to the War & Lockheed Martin
Throughout the demonstration, participants observed the spirit and discipline of nonviolence - "refraining from the violence of fist, tongue, and heart" (Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.)
Applying Dr. King's message these american citizens displayed thier resistance to the war and the Iraq War #1 Profiteer, world's largest weapons corporation, the U.S. chief nuclear weapons and "Star War" contractor.
"The U.S. invasion and occupation of Iraq has, according to the British Medical Journal, the Lancet, resulted in the deaths of at least 100,000 Iraqis most of whom were "women and children killed in violent deaths, primarily carried out by U.S. air strikes." Like the thousands and thousands of Iraqis killed each of the now 2215 U.S. deaths in Iraq and the more than 16, 420 wounded and maimed are not only victims of a particular policy built on lies but also the casualties of a far deeper disease - the ambition of empire and the greed of militarism.Today, we remember a martyred prophet, a "drum major for justice", a peacemaker, and nonviolent revolutionary. We stand before the Iraq War's #1 profiteer. We stand before Lockheed Martin, the world largest weapons producing corporation, remembering all the victims of war and weapons building, remembering all the casualties of social and environmental neglect, remembering all that suffer and die on the altar of corporate greed, empire, and violence." - Lockhead Taco Protester
