In preparation for PLC 2011, we’re putting up articles and information related to Lockheed Martin which is the focus of this year’s Pacific Life Community gathering. William D. Hartung has written an article “Is Lockheed Martin Shadowing You?” which describes the frighteningly extensive contract work which Lockheed Martin does for the Pentagon, the IRS, the Transportation Security Administration (the guys who check your ID and pat you down at the airport), and even the Post Office.
William writes, “the company receives one of every 14 dollars doled out by the Pentagon…its government contracts, thought about another way, amount to a ‘Lockheed Martin tax’ of $260 per taxpaying household in the United States.”
We, in the Pacific Life Community, are making our citizen’s initiative at Lockheed Martin’s Sunnyvale plant because of the corporation’s active role in the immoral and illegal Trident nuclear weapon system—a submarine-based first strike missile that threatens to destroy all life on earth.
