At long last my book 99 Tactics of Successful Tax Resistance Campaigns
is published and available to the public. You can order it from http://sniggle.net/99Tactics
It answers the question "how do tax resistance campaigns succeed in meeting their goals?" by using concrete examples from tax resistance campaigns from thousands of years of history and from all over the globe.
A successful tax resistance campaign won't limit itself to resisting taxes. It will develop a set of tactics on several other fronts as well: to support resisters, to increase the number of resisters, to frustrate government countermeasures, to influence public opinion, to expand the arsenal of resistance techniques, and to lay the groundwork for victory.99 Tactics
explores useful tactics in each of these categories. It also, using the examples of American tax resisters Ammon Hennacy and Henry David Thoreau, discusses how solitary resisters can succeed on their own terms in their one-person campaigns.
This book should serve as a useful cookbook to help tax resistance groups decide on tactics that will help them meet their goals. A workshop appendix (which is also available as a free stand-alone PDF at http://sniggle.net/99Tactics
) is designed to help groups select tactics to strengthen their campaigns.
You'll notice some familiar names in the book: Russell & Kat Kanning, Dave Ridley, Lauren Canario, and "Robin Hood of Keene" for instance (see the attached excerpts).
