Virtual War Tax Protest
April 15, 2020Free
On this “traditional” deadline day to file income taxes, we will be conducting a virtual demonstration to protest the obscene amount of U.S. tax dollars being spent on the Pentagon and U.S. wars around the world while people have inadequate or no health care, go without meals, are homeless, are out of work, lack educational opportunities.
We encourage people to post protest images online through social media, such as this Facebook page, emails, and on websites. Please include #NoTaxes4War and #NWTRCC in your posts. www.nwtrcc.org/2020/04/09/tax-day-press-release-2020/
In addition many of us will be openly refusing to pay war taxes to the IRS and instead will be rerouting that money to organizations and people who are underfunded or are suffering because of distorted priorities of the U.S. government. For more information on how to resist taxes for war, go to www.nwtrcc.org.
