Protest Taxes for War
April 17, 2018 • Tuesday
noon – 1 pm
IRS (290 Broadway at Duane St., 2 blocks north of City Hall)
Because of the escalating U.S. spending on war and the military — current military spending for $857 billion by the Pentagon and other departments, plus $644 billion continued spending for past wars — we will gather for a picket and vigil at the IRS office (Broadway at Duane) a couple blocks north of City Hall in Manhattan.
We will also encourage people to considering refusing to pay these taxes to the Internal Revenue Service and, instead, reroute them to organizations seeking to create a better world for all people.
April 14 to May 3 is also part of the international Global Days of Action on Military Spending, organized by Global Campaign on Military Spending and supported by the International Peace Bureau.
If you’re on Facebook and can attend the action, please check “going” on our event page.
Sponsored by NYC War Resisters League, Catholic Worker, Kairos, World Can’t Wait, Veterans for Peace/Chapter 34, NYC Metro Raging Grannies, Brooklyn For Peace, Granny Peace Brigade (list in formation)
