Lockheed-Martin protest

Lockheed-Martin Demonstration on Gaza, Spring 2014. Join the Pacific Life Community at Lockheed-Martin’s Sunnyvale headquarters on the fourth Friday of the month to call out their roles in nuclear weapons production and in arming Israel.

The San Francisco Wage Peace program challenges the militarization of U.S. society, changing the narrative of military efficacy by:

1.  highlighting the high cost of war spending, especially in maintaining our nuclear arsenal, as a method of security that cuts into meeting human needs that build a truer human security;  

2.  exposing high school military recruitment practices that undermine civilian public education through presentations of a  full picture of military life and high school alternatives that offer the same discipline, teamwork, community and leadership as JROTC; and

3.  exposing the war profiteering role of the University of California system and Lockheed-Martin Corporation in the nuclear weapons industry through economic activism campaigns. 

Our work is informed by the ethos that recognizes others as fellow human beings, even when they are our adversaries.
