25th Annual New England Regional Gathering of War Tax Resisters and Supporters

Sunday, November 7, 2010, 8:00 - 5:00 p.m. [NOTE: This is Day 3 of the meeting, Days 1 & 2 take place in Cambridge at the Friends Meeting House, 9 Longfellow Park] The New England Regional Gathering of War Tax Resisters provides an opportunity to gain the information and make the connections necessary in successfully doing war tax resistance/refusal/redirection (WTR). The gathering is for both new and experienced war tax resisters, as well as for those just testing the waters. Together we will share and expand our community of resistance to rampant US militarism and endless war.

We need a vibrant war tax resistance/refusal/redirection (WTR) movement for a strong anti-war movement; we need an active anti-war movement for a healthy WTR movement. And we need strong movements for social and economic justice, democratic institutions, reduced resource consumption and local economies, etc. that connect all the dots for the well-being of humans and the environment. We need “an Organized War (Tax) Resistance Movement.” This gathering helps to build that movement in New England and beyond.

This gathering will offer reasons why WTR is an effective strategy and the how-to’s and nuts and bolts details of how to begin refusing/resisting/redirecting federal income and phone taxes.

We will combine our gathering with the semi-annual meeting of the National War Tax Resistance Coordinating Committee (NWTRCC). NWTRCC provides information, referral, and support to WTRs, produces resources, publicizes those who are doing WTR, sponsors or supports initiatives and campaigns, and participates in international WTR networks. Some of those most active nationally in the WTR movement will join us to tell their stories and update us on national and international WTR campaigns.
