Press photo of a demonstration / happening on September 18, 1970 in protest of Honeywell’s long and continued ties with the military, and a proposed merger with the General Electric Computer Division. The Honeywell Project, formed in 1968 and active until 1990, organized continuing protests against Honeywell’s role in the military industrial complex. Despite what would be decades of actions without incident, protests in 1970 were the only to result in police crackdown and property damage.
