Winning Nomination

The Honeywell Project began in 1968 as an attempt to pressure Honeywell, Inc., to quit manufacturing cluster bombs, and to educate the public about the inhumane nature of such weapons. The project was noted for its nonviolent nature and use of civil disobedience by large numbers of people. Thousands of Minnesotans participated and national media was attracted. The project continued for many years in varying degrees of intensity until Honeywell finally seperated and sold its weapons manufacturing businesses. The Honeywell Project and public opinion played a role in Honeywell's decision.
