IF YOU WORK FOR PEACE, STOP PAYING FOR WAR by Cindy Sheehan
War Tax Resistance
Recently, at the Occupy the Rose Parade Rally where I spoke, I talked about one of my forms of resistance: Not paying my federal income taxes.
Even though I have been very vocal about this for almost eight years now, since my son was killed in Iraq; and even though tax resistance is a long and honored form of protest, all of a sudden I am being attacked for tax “evasion.”
I can’t help it if people don’t pay attention to what I say and what I do and I also can’t help it if other people want to contribute to the crimes of the U.S. government, but I recently wrote this article entitled: “We Will Never Pay so Stop Harassing Us.”
Also, for the last Soapbox of 2012, I hosted the co-ordinators of the National War Tax Resistance League on Cindy Sheehan’s Soapbox—listen here at this link.
