Protesters defiant: “I am the accuser not the accused”
Three people have been charged with £32,000 worth of criminal damage to the Raytheon Rooftop between december 2008 and january this year, around the time Israel bombarded Gaza with weapons made by Raytheon . One of the charged Elijah Smith was heard saying “I am the accuser not the accused”.
Raytheon should be in the dock they are the worlds biggest producer of missiles and poisoned countless civilians and soldiers with Dupleted Uranium.
Raytheon is enabling Israeli forces to engage in practices that violate international law, UN Resolutions and the human rights of the Palestinian people through being a major manufacturer of munitions used by the Israeli army. Raytheon has also supplied electronic equipment for the Israeli Wall. Fragments of Raytheon weapons have been found in Lebanon and more recently a school in the Gaza strip.
Raytheon’s Paveway guided bomb system, was “the most widely used precision munition in Operation Iraqi Freedom. More than 8,700 were dropped.” We are all now well aware of the illegal basis of the Iraqi war, its failure to find any WMD’s and its ongoing toll on the civilian population.
Raytheon also invented the ‘silent guardian’ a crowd control sytem that uses microwaves to make crowds of people unable to act by heating them up and causing nausia. And watch out calais campers they have a 1.3 billion contract for CCTV system’s on the British border’s.
On 11 June 2008, by a unanimous verdict of the jury, the Raytheon 9 were found not guilty of three counts of criminal damage at the Raytheon offices,valued at £300,000 , in Derry Northern Ireland on 9 August 2006. With this president being set under British law, some of the Bristol defendants are optimistic of similar verdict but they will need your help thanks for reading, watch this space.
