More than half of our federal income taxes are being used for war. If you want to stop war, the first thing you need to do is stop paying for it. And it's easier than you might think. More than one-third of U.S. "taxpayers" pay ZERO federal income tax (I know it sounds incredible, but you can look it up: 37% of us pay nothing, and no that number wasn't inflated by including children).

Learn how to join those "lucky duckys" in the non-paying third who aren't paying for Dubya's moonshots and marriage counsellors. There are many ways to go about it: legal or illegal, safe or confrontational. Join us for these war tax resistance workshops to find out more.

Topics will include:

= Creative legal protests (yes, you can resist taxes legally!)

= Illegal refusal to pay all or part of federal taxes and the
possible consequences of this form of civil disobedience

= Redirecting resisted taxes to local alternative funds and/or
community organizations

= Local support networks for war tax resisters
