Marillyn Hewson: People Before Profits!


In 2015, Forbes named Marillyn Hewson, CEO of Lockheed Martin, the highest paid female CEO and “the 20th most powerful woman in the world”.  Hewson fashions herself a role model for women, but her company is selling weapons to the Saudi regime, weapons that are killing and maiming women and children day after day. As CEO of a company whose annual report boasts of being “...proud to stand with our international partners to enhance their capabilities to protect the lives of citizens and build a brighter future…”, it seems like a good time to tell Marillyn Hewson that selling weapons to the repressive Saudi regime will not protect lives of Yemeni citizens nor build a brighter future.

Dear Marillyn A. Hewson,

Please help us engineer a better tomorrow by immediately halting all weapons sales to Saudi Arabia. U.S. supported Saudi bombings of Yemen have caused a humanitarian crisis of catastrophic proportions. As the CEO of Lockheed Martin you have the opportunity to prevent further exacerbation of the crisis in Yemen. Please halt Lockheed Martin weapon sales to Saudi Arabia.

    Marilyn, Please change your production from weapons that murder children to renewable energy. Make wind turbines and solar panels. You will sleep better at night and children around the globe will have a better chance to thrive. Focus on reversing climate change so your grandchildren will also thrive. Thank you.

    20 years ago, Lockheed got a $4 million tax break to stay in Syracuse — they would have left — and the money came from the state, 4 weeks after the state cut $4 M out of funds for child care for children at risk in our county. Tax dollars for weapons are a theft AND a mortal threat to children everywhere! No more weapons to Saudis!

    Our worship of arms-manufacturing companies since WWII is appalling.

    We need to hold those who make profits on the suffering of others accountable for crimes against humanity and not allow them to hide behind false ideas like national security.
