*Bay Area War Tax Resisters and Friends,*
2018 has brought us a $700 billion US military budget, the heightened
threat of nuclear war and increasing attacks on immigrants, education,
health care, the environment and all but the most privileged in the US.
Those of us who stand against these threats to our very survival feel ever
greater reasons to resist militarism and war, and to redirect our taxes
toward life sustaining work! The National War Tax Resistance Coordinating
Committee's website <http://nwtrcc.org/resist/how-to-resist/> is an
excellent source of information on the methods and consequences of refusing
to pay for war.
The People's Life Fund <http://nowartax.org> is looking forward to
redirecting a record breaking $65,000 in resisted war taxes to local peace
and justice organizations this year! We have increased the maximum grant
size to $2,500 for 2018, and extended the deadline to March 23rd.
Applications can be downloaded here: PLF 2018 Grant Application
