Protest Against Boeing

MOSCOW () -- Aircraft industry workers plan to protest imports of American-made Boeing planes as part of a national day of action Nov. 5, a Interfax reported.


It said Anatoly Breusov told a union congress in Moscow that workers would tout the slogan "Down With Boeings" to underscore their contention that use of the imported jets, especially by national carrier Aeroflot, could ruin the Russian aircraft manufacturing industry.


Aeroflot drew fire last month for agreeing to buy 10 new Boeing jets, but said it would buy Russian planes when they met higher technical and economic standards.
