April 15th Tax Day Anti-War Action in Seattle
Wednesday, April 15, 2015, time 11:30am
Midtown Post Office at 301 Union St (at 3rd Ave.) in downtown Seattle
Please join members of Greater Seattle Veterans For Peace on GDAMS/Tax Day as we help raise public awareness about the militarization of the US federal budget and about nonviolent alternatives to passively paying for wars and weapons we don't want.
This action is one of the many taking place as part of the Global Day of Action Against Military Spending. We will be distributing copies of the War Resisters League's pie chart leaflet--"Where Your Income Tax Money Really Goes" which analyzes the 2015 federal budget.

Ghost of Tonkin
It will devastate two countries.
It will topple the President of the United States.
It will kill two million people.
And one man will try to stop it before it begins.
Winner of the prestigious Fratti-Newman Political Play Writing Award, The Ghosts of Tonkin is based on telephone conversations, senate transcripts, recently released NSA documents and other sources.
