Breaking News Nov. 30, 2023 -- During the protest of Raytheon Missiles and the University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona, twenty-six people were arrested, including a news reporter. Raytheon is providing weapons to Israel for genocide, and partners with the University of Arizona to design weapons of death. Raytheon's business partner is Rafael, one of the largest defense contractors in Israel.

At the UA Tech Park, Raytheon, which supplies the Israeli military, works in close collaboration with the University of Arizona to design weapons of war.
About 60 people held a rally in front of the Tech Park -- demanding an end to collaboration with Raytheon and Israel -- while those who physically blockaded the entrance are being loaded into police vehicles inside the complex.
Vehicle access to the UA Tech Park was blocked for at least an hour, with protesters blocking the main entrances to Raytheon and workers zooming in and out of the crowds attempting to get in.
A blockade also occurred at the west entrance to the campus; police have arrested all the blockaders there.
After clearing protesters from blocking UA Tech Park/Raytheon's entrance, Pima County Sheriffs also insisted on arresting KJZZ journalist Alisa Reznick despite Reznick clearly carrying media equipment and repeatedly identifying herself as press.
