Our next meeting, scheduled for this Sunday, has been postponed. We are looking to plan an event for January/February 2022 to share information and insights about tax resistance at the start of the tax season.
November 5th-7th the National War Tax Resistance Coordinating Committee (NWTRCC) will be holding an online gathering, "Individual Resistance & Collective Power." There will be a panel discussion with members of Money Rebellion and Grup Antimilitarista Tortuga, a talk with Atty. Peter Goldberger, and War Tax Resistance 101 and 201 sessions. Pre-registration is required to gain access to this online event.
TPNE will meet on Sunday, October 10th at 3pm. More information available via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
War tax resisters--some who began their resistance just in the past couple years and others who have been doing it for decades--came together on August 4th and September 2nd in virtual meetings to start a discussion on forming a new regional group to serve people in western Massachusetts, Vermont, and beyond. The group settled on the name Taxes for Peace New England after considering a dozen possibilities; those present appreciated the aspirational and positive qualities of the name (i.e. saying what the group desires--peace) and the geographic inclusiveness.
TPNE members have indicated a strong desire to educate their communities about war tax resistance, to be in solidarity with other peace and justice movements, and to offer in person connections to resisters and allies. To that end group members are looking for opportunities to collaborate with other organizations, particularly around the upcoming International Day of Peace.
