Press Conference and Rally: Monday, May 2, 8:15 a.m. at the Field Museum, South Steps

On May 2, 2016, five Boeing Company shareholders will attend the annual meeting to vote for and speak in support of a resolution which will require that the corporation prepare a report detailing its arms sales to Israel.

The sponsoring shareholders and supporting community organizations will come together to demonstrate public support for transparency and accountability from Boeing Company.  Sarah Simmons of the Anti-War Committee, and a Boeing shareholder, stated, “Our goal is to prevent shareholders from being unwitting collaborators in human rights’ and international law violations committed with weapons Boeing has manufactured and sold to Israel.”

Simmons added, “Given that Boeing enjoys significant tax advantages here in Chicago, and that its stock is widely held in pension funds here and elsewhere, this is an issue that is of concern to all Chicagoans.”
