Textron is the manufacturer of cluster bombs that are sold to Saudi Arabia for use in the Saudi-U.S. attack on Yemen and its people; these cluster bombs are banned in an international treaty signed or ratified by 216 countries, excluding the U.S. and Saudi Arabia. War crimes are regularly committed against the civilian population and Yemen is on the verge of collapse. 3,200 civilians have been killed, largely due to the reckless use of these cluster munitions in densely populated areas. Yet, Textron continues to provide its bombs for the war.
