3 pm – 5 pm
Times Square Military Recruiting Station (43 St. & 7th Ave.), followed by march to GPO (32 St. & 8th Ave.)

On May 17 — the final day to file federal income taxes — we will demonstrate against federal income taxes being spent on the U.S. military and its wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, Syria, Pakistan, and other countries instead of being spent on desperately needed medical care, climate change, housing, education, pollution abatement, meaningful jobs, and general improvement in the quality of life.

3 pm Gather at the Times Square Armed Forces Recruiting Station, 43rd Street and Seventh Avenue.
3:30 pm March down Eighth Avenue to 32nd Street.
4 to 5 pm Protest, vigil, and leaflet at the General Post Office and Moynihan Train Hall.
