David Swanson and Cindy Sheehan and war tax resisters from across the country met up in Asheville, North Carolina, May 3–5. The New South Network of War Resisters hosted and lots of locals joined us, provided housing, and told their stories. Read “Some Don’t Pay Their War Taxes” by David Swanson. See video excerpts. David Gross posted photos on Facebook, and we’ll add more links to photos and video in the next couple days. Thanks to our hosts, to Cindy who took time from the Tour de Peace, and to everyone who came!
War tax resistance doesn’t stop after April 15. In fact, now is a good time to study up. Every paycheck with federal tax withholding gives a loan for federal tax dollars that help buy drones, indefinite detention, nuclear weapons, killing innocent civilians… if you’re reading this you probably have your own list. Read through our “How To” page to get started.
