Lockheed Martin Vigil
September 26, 2014
Today, at Lockheed Martin, we stand next to the building where D-5 missiles that carry nuclear warheads are being made. We also stand with people around the world who believe in nonviolence and think that the problems we all face are better and more appropriately sol
ved by figuring out how to share resources and get along with others.
Today, we join with Campaign Nonviolence, and hundreds of other groups around the country. Campaign Nonviolence is a movement to spread nonviolence as a way of life in our personal lives and in our collective life as a nation. By studying the principles and methods of nonviolence, by sharing stories of nonviolence, by practicing nonviolence in our day-to-day lives, and by bringing that same ethic into our public life, we hope to change the culture of this violent warmaking Empire we live under.
Campaign Nonviolence invites people everywhere to
• Practice nonviolence toward themselves
• Practice nonviolence toward all others, and
• Practice nonviolence
toward the world by joining the global movement to abolish war, end poverty, reverse the climate crisis, and challenge all forms of violence.
As the Pacific Life Community gathers at Lockheed Martin, America’s largest military contractor, we are aware of the spectrum of violence that Lockheed stands for: nuclear mis
siles for the trident nuclear weapon system, hellfire missiles that are fired from drones, and planes sold to Israel and used against the people of Gaza. Lockheed sends interrogators to places like Guantanamo prison and lobbyists to Washington to form foreign policy. As we protest and vigil, we stand for the original rainbow of diversity, hope and peace, and we stand against all warmaking.
