Political Action at the gates of
Lockheed Martin, Santa Cruz
to commemorate the 61st Anniversary of the
Nuclear Bombing of Nagasaki
March to Lockheed Martin*
The Santa Cruz Weapons Inspection Team (SCWIT) invites the public to join the march to Lockheed Martin to mark the annihilation and devastation delivered to the people of Nagasaki, targeted on August 9, 1945, by nuclear bombs far less powerful than the ones Lockheed Martin presently manufactures. The nonviolent action will include delivering to Lockheed Martin the collective ideas for conversion technologies generated by the people of Santa Cruz.
From the first nuclear bombs that the U.S. dropped on Japan in 1945 to the deadly "depleted" uranium it deployed in both Iraq wars, to the earth-penetrating "bunker busters" it projects detonating in Iran, our nation has forged a multibillion dollar business out of nuclear weapons technology. The largest and most profitable designer, manufacturer, and merchant of those weapons is Lockheed Martin, which operates a 4,400 acre facility at the end of Empire Grade in Santa Cruz. Our Bonny Doon-based Lockheed Martin facility manufactures and tests Contained Detonating Fuses (CDFs) for the deadliest weapon ever made - the Trident II D5 nuclear submarine missile.
*Community members are invited to join the carpool from Holy Cross Church parking lot at 12:45 P.M. We will march from approx. ½ mile before Lockheed Martin's gate at the end of Empire Grade, Bonny Doon. Activities at the gate will begin around 2 P.M.
