Tax Strike

Tax Strike: "A Call for a National Tax Strike

Taxpayers have the power and the duty to stop the killing in Iraq

Stop the Money to Stop the War

The most effective way of stopping war is to stop the money that pays for war. All wars are started by governments, and democratic governments can’t do anything without your money. If the UK and American Governments had had no money to pay the troops or purchase the weapons, to fly the bombers or train the soldiers, then they could not have fought the war with Iraq. The time has come for taxpayers to take control of the nation’s destiny by stopping the money that funds the killing. "

It is not exactly going to stop the war, but I urge my readers to check this legal case out for withholding their taxes as a protest against the continuation of this illegal occupation of another country.
