ABC7 News: Boeing protesters gather outside Field Museum
CHICAGO (WLS) -- Demonstrators protested outside of a Boeing company shareholder's meeting at the Field Museum Monday morning. A coalition of local organizations wants the public and shareholders to know that Boeing is profiting from what they describe as torture. The group claims a subsidiary of Boeing sold direct flight services to the CIA where torture was used on captives in US custody.
Boeing, which is headquartered in Chicago, says they have no way of knowing if the allegations against them are true, nor will they ask, because they respect the confidentiality and privacy of all its customers.
