Ukrainian President Zelensky will headline the National Defense Industrial Association conference of war-profiting industries like Raytheon Technologies, Lockheed Martin, and General Dynamics.
This conference is being held to secure the already record-breaking war expenditures for the U.S./NATO proxy war against Russia. A major part of the agenda will address how the giant U.S. defense contractors can speed up production of high-tech weapons.
While war profiteers and the Pentagon receive billions, the U.S. infrastructure cannot even guarantee safe drinking water in the U.S. Today, the people of Jackson, Mississippi, face life-threatening denials of water, while the annual inflation rate is at its highest in over 40 years and the housing crisis intensifies as more families can no longer afford their rents or mortgage.
We are being asked to sacrifice our lives and our children’s lives for the expansion of NATO, the most belligerent and violent military association in the history of the world, and the immense record profits of Raytheon and Lockheed, and other merchants of death.
These weapons manufacturers are today’s beneficiaries of the greatest single expenditures for war in the history of the U.S. The Biden Administration is now spending 70 billion dollars for this war, and they, along with the Republican Party, encourage the government in Ukraine to not negotiate but, instead, escalate with billions more in weapons. This U.S. war effort also threatens China and recklessly provokes World War. The only way this will end is if we make our voices heard! Shut Down the NDIA – No More Money for U.S./NATO Wars!
If you cannot get to Austin, please consider supporting activists who are caravaning from the East and West Coasts and the region. Funds are desperately needed for gas, supplies, and motel costs.
