11 Arrested at Boeing Hq in Chicago

March 14, 2003


At Boeing’s world headquarters in Chicago, 11 people were arrested for protesting Boeing’s role in the possible war in Iraq. Boeing is the nation’s second largest defense contractor after Lockheed-Martin. Last year the government paid Boeing $25 billion in contracts. Boeing makes many key weapons that may be used in Iraq including Apache combat helicopters, guidance systems for the Tomahawk Cruise missile and integrated systems for laser-guided "smart bombs" as well as nuclear weapons.
