Dear Mr. Donnelly,
I am a concerned customer of Textron. I have an Arctic Cat, and I buy other Textron products. I learned that the Aerospace and Defense division of your company is involved in the production of nuclear weapons.
Your company, specifically designs and builds re-entry vehicles for the US Minuteman III inter-continental ballistic missile (ICBM).
You claim that: “With powerful brands and a passion for innovation, there’s no limit to where we can go,” but is part of you goal to test the capacity of nuclear weapons to annihilate the world?
These activities contribue to the build-up and modernization of nuclear arms at a time when the world has condemned and outlawed everything to do with these weapons.
The 2017 Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons prohibits the development, testing, production, manufacture, possession and stockpiling of nuclear weapons. It also specifically prohibits “assisting, encouraging or inducing, in any way, anyone to engage in any activity prohibited by the treaty.” I am therefore asking you to discontinue your work on nuclear weapons without delay, to bring Textron into compliance with this new treaty.
Your support will be crucial to the success of worldwide efforts to abolish nuclear weapons. I hope that you will assist rather than impede efforts to eliminate this ultimate threat to our future. It will protect your company from the impact this Treaty will have on your business worldwide, as more and more countries sign, ratify and implement this Treaty. And will protect your company from the inevitable impact this Treaty will have on your line of business when the US government is finally forced to sign the Treaty itself.
I want my home purchases to help secure my well-being and that of my family, not undermine it. Unless you can reassure me that you will no longer be a nuclear weapons producer, I intend to move my business elsewhere.
I look forward to your response to these concerns and will be happy to share it with others around the world who have similar concerns.
Yours sincerely,
