Boycott Elbit Everysight Raptor Cycling Glasses

Israel’s largest weapons manufacturer – is taking its death and destruction mainstream by selling glasses to bicyclists so they can ride like an F-35 fighter jet pilot. From Palestine to the U.S.-Mexico border, Elbit is responsible for war crimes and repression. For the Israeli military, Elbit is the main supplier of drones, weapons and surveillance technology. For the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Elbit supplies surveillance towers, radars and drones used to repress migrants and asylum seekers. Elbit subsidiary, Everysight makes and sells glasses for bicyclists to ride with the same fighter jet technology that Elbit produces for F-35 pilot helmets. Their promotional videos even celebrate how 'exciting' it is to ride your bicycle like a fighter jet.

    Wonderful. It reminds me of a saying I used to…, when I was feeling invincible in my 20’s, I’ll blow up that bridge when I get to it, as a missive to the ‘convenience furthers’ crowd, for, perseverance furthers, instead. A few thoughts :) An injustice to any is an injustice to all, and if it isn’t addressed individually, it becomes a global injustice as well. “You can’t struggle with the man’s house (mansion) using the man’s tools”, Audrey Lourdes, “be the change you wish to see in the world”, “the root of all oppression lies in (supposed) science”, Gandhi. Remember, if responsibility isn’t exercised, its Siamese twin sister, freedom, will wither, like an unused muscle as well; now, sadly, because of self-possession, it needs to be exorcised before it’s exercised. No one must be conned by the corporate structure’s convolution, divide and conquer only works on the divided, life is indivisible, as your potential is illimitable. If you will, please copy, share.


    Matutinally Yours,
    reality, james nordlund
