GOAL: EMERGENCY CLOSURE OF GENERAL DYNAMICS 155MM SHELL FACTORY IN SCRANTON, PA

On Sunday, December 3 at 12 Noon, people from New York state, Pennsylvania, and beyond, supporters of the Leahy Law will be invoked by United States citizens to close the General Dynamics 155 mm shell factory, the largest manufacturer in the country, at 156 Cedar Ave in Scranton, Pa.

A solemn funeral procession with people wearing white death masks and carrying shrouds of symbolic children will process along the main gate to the slaughterhouse as the names of the children are sung out. An Imam will pray with funeral verses chanted from the Quran. Members of the cortege will do a die-in blocking the main gate.

National Director of Veterans for Peace Mike Furner and National Veterans For Peace Board Member, Nick Mottern, will call for the shutting down of the General Dynamics factory and signs will be placed on the slaughterhouse fence proclaiming the violation of the Leahy Law.
