Tell Textron: Stop Selling Cluster Bombs to Saudi Arabia!

Take action to call on Textron Defense Industries to stop cluster bomb sales to Saudi Arabia!

(Join CODEPINK, the Global Day of Action On Military Spending Coalition, and Southeast New England Regional Witness for Peace to deliver this petition to Textron at Textron World Headquarters, 40 Westminster Street Providence, Rhode Island, on Monday, April 18 at 4:30 pm! For more information contact Martha Yager, American Friends Service Committee at sene@afsc.org.)

We, the undersigned, call on Textron Industries and CEO Scott C. Donnelly to immediately cease all sales of munitions to Saudi Arabia. Cluster bombs sold by Textron have been used in the Saudi-U.S. attack on Yemen and its people. War crimes are regularly committed against the civilian population and Yemen is on the verge of collapse. Yet, Textron continues to provide its bombs for the war.

Textron’s munitions have been part of a campaign that has caused the death of 3,000 innocent Yemeni civilians. It’s time for this to stop. Please immediately cease all weapons sales to Saudi Arabia to ensure that your products are not used to commit further atrocities.

    Cluster bombs should not be made, let alone used

    No excuses for cluster bombs. Stop their carnage now. Nothing is worth maiming a child for life.

    Learn how to make peace, don’t be spurious. Be agents of commitment to respect, education, operation, caring for community, neighbors, immigrants of various good religions at heart, billions not to be discriminated against. The US needs to prove it’s values, not impose, and destroy. But you’re focus is business models of greed, and power over others. You lack morality, compassion, life affirming. No wonder you incite extremists. Grow truth, and a better world!

    they are against international law. It’s high time the United States joins up with the rest of the world. And tells Israel where to go.the other big violator of international law. Well over 100 nations have signed. What in the hell are we waiting for?

    Please stop selling these weapons that have been banned in 119 countries. Cluster munitions are indiscriminate weapons.

    Is profit so important that they must continue to manufacture these when most of the world has outlawed them? When the US makes them illegal Textron will have to find another product line – hopefully one that enhances people’s lives.
