National War Tax Resistance Gathering
May 2 - 4, 2014
at Peace Resource Center
3850 Westgate Place • San Diego, CA 92105
"Another World is Possible"-- a popular slogan and sign during the most active days of Occupy -- fits well with the dreams and actions of war tax resisters. As we refuse to cooperate with the war machine, we also redirect our money to the people, programs, and projects that help to build a better world.
San Diego is home to the largest naval fleet in the world, many military contractors, and close to a highly militarized border -- a perfect setting to learn about war tax resistance, strategize how to strengthen our efforts, and share skills and stories to strengthen our own resolve.
The gathering is open to everyone with an interest in war tax resistance and will include many longtime war tax resisters from around the country. Everyone is encouraged to join this discussion of how to end war and create a better world.
Registration begins at 4 pm on Friday, May 2 at the Peace Resource Center, and all meals and events are at the Center. We ask a registration fee of $15 in advance if possible, but no one is turned away
Come for the whole weekend or one session.
Hosted by the Peace Resource Center & the National War Tax Resistance Coordinating Committee (NWTRCC)
