Textron's Big Deals

Student activists from Brown were scheduled to stage a protest today outside the headquarters of Providence-based Textron, protesting the conglomerate's role in making and distributing various weapons of war.

Back in 2000, Steve Stycos reported on how Textron was about to cash in with a sale of military helicopters to Turkey, in spite of fears by human-rights activists that they would be used against that country's Kurdish minority. Textron was later chosen outstanding philanthropic corporation for 2001 by the Association of Fundraising Professionals.
