Occupy Chicago has posted a notice on the organization’s Facebook page calling for the shutdown of Boeing’s Chicago headquarters building during the NATO Summit later this month.
“Boeing has received over $12,231,152,299 from the U.S. Department of Defense to produce war machines, which are used to terrorize civilians and communities the world over” the posting states. “These tools of destruction are produced using prison labor, allowing Boeing to make weaponized products for pennies on the dollar.”
The Occupy notice calls Boeing a “war criminal” and states that members of the organization will shut down Boeing on May 21, the Monday of the NATO Summit.
Boeing has manufacturing facilities across the United States. They relocated their world headquarters to Chicago from Seattle in 2001.
