THE STORY:

Keep Lockheed Martin out of Burlington!

Burlington neighbors are concerned at the prospect of Lockheed engineers working with kids inside Burlington schools, at the lack of transparency and public comment with which the Kiss administration brokered this most unlikely of partnerships, at Lockheed’s long reputation for fraud, discrimination, environmental degradation and war profiteering, and at how this could let Lockeed privatize existing climate change efforts.

Lockheed profits from social and ecological destruction. They are not in the business of building a healthier, more sustainable future.

Progressives and non-progressives alike are mobilizing against the proposed partnership between Burlington and Lockheed Martin. Momentum is building quickly, and organizing is getting stronger. This issue is about corporate power, domination, influence, greenwashing, and misplaced priorities at the expense of Burlington's hard-won reputation for and progress in sustainability initiatives. In many instances we're powerless against it. But this is a special case - all we need to do is have our mayor tear up that letter of cooperation. Mayor Kiss has been elected to serve citizens of Burlington, to reflect their values through his representation of them, and to make decisions for the public good based on those values. Now we're saying loud and clear, with a stronger voice than ever, please NO LOCKHEED!
