national tax resistance gathering in NYC in early November
« on: September 04, 2013, 03:31 PM NHFT »

The National War Tax Resistance Coordinating Committee (NWTRCC) is holding its Fall, 2013 national gathering in N.Y.C., November 1–3: http://nwtrcc.org/meetings.php

This group has been helping war tax resisters (tax resisters with an anti-war/anti-militarism focus) for over 30 years, and some of the resisters in the network have been resisting for over 60 years! These gatherings are a great opportunity to draw on the experience of people who have been resisting taxes successfully in a variety of ways for many years.

The gathering will open with a Friday night panel featuring a variety of activists from outside of the NWTRCC network, with an eye to trying to find out what we can learn from each other to make our activism more successful.  We'd love to have an activist from the NH Underground crew who could talk about some of the creative civil disobedience actions you've cooked up.  Drop me a line or contact NWTRCC at nwtrcc@nwtrcc.org if you'd be interested in participating.

Here's the program: http://nwtrcc.org/NYC-program-2013.php

Some items of note include Friday night's panel:

Quote
Economic Disobedience and Strengthening Our Organizing Networks

Activists of various “economic disobedient” types will talk about their activism, how it might intersect more strongly with war tax resisters, and how we can better work together to build a stronger movement. Possible presenters will talk about living in community, student debt, move the money, occupying foreclosed property, breaking travel bans, and such. Discussion will follow short presentations.

and workshops on Saturday including:

Quote
  • Introduction to war tax resistance — English
  • Introducción a la objeción fiscal — Español
  • Counseling and updates for Current war tax resisters (frivolous penalty, phone tax, etc.)
  • Support: How can we better support war tax resisters around the country?
  • Fine Tuning Your Actions — Jason Rawn ("Aimed at helping tax resisters choose tactics and strategies that are in line with their reasons for resisting and desire to promote this form of resistance, this workshop is based on worksheets in the soon-to-be-released book by California writer David Gross, 99 Tactics of Successful Tax Resistance Campaigns.")

Jesse Ventura has a new book out so I have heard him talking on 3 different radio shows. He asks if we get a tax break this year for each day the government is shut down. :)

There are several mentions of the Free Keene tax resistance set in the book as well.
