Tell Lockheed Martin to Begin Conversion to Peaceful Industries
Lockheed Martin is by far the largest weapons producer in the world. From Ukraine to Yemen, from Palestine to Colombia, from Somalia to Syria, from Afghanistan and West Papua to Ethiopia, no one profits more from war and bloodshed than Lockheed Martin.
Sign this petition to Lockheed Martin to urge immediate conversion from weapons manufacturing to peaceful industries for economic, environmental, and survival reasons! We will be delivering this petition to Lockheed Martin's headquarters and various other Lockheed Martin locations as part of the Global Mobilization to #StopLockheedMartin (April 21-28, 2022).

By far the world's biggest weapons dealer, Lockheed Martin brags about arming over 50 countries. These include many of the most oppressive governments and dictatorships around the world. Lockheed Martin is also involved in the production of nuclear weapons, as well as being the producer of the horrific and disastrous F-35, and the THAAD missile systems used to escalate tensions around the globe. Apart from the crimes its products are manufactured for, Lockheed Martin is frequently found guilty of fraud and other misconduct.
Therefore, we urge Lockheed Martin to immediately initiate a plan for conversion from weapons manufacture to peaceful industries with a just transition for arms industry workers that secures the livelihoods of workers and includes the participation of unions.
