Refuse to Pay for War

If .you've found this website, you must be somewhere between outraged and sick about all the U.S. tax money that goes to the military and to war.

While other groups campaign against high military spending and lobby Congress (and some of us are part of those groups too), those of us involved in a War Tax Boycott take a stand with our money. Thousands of individuals in the U.S. participate in this powerful act of nonviolent civil disobedience despite the risks. If the government won't cut off the funds, we will.

As of summer 2015, the War Tax Boycott internet campaign is on hold while we upgrade our websites and make revisions to the content.

Meanwhile, war tax resisters are still resisting and boycotting war taxes. You can find all the information you need to get started on the National War Tax Resistance Coordinating Committee (NWTRCC) website.

The War Tax Boycott was initiated in September 2007 by the National War Tax Resistance Coordinating Committee (NWTRCC) and was endorsed by Voices for Creative Nonviolence, War Resisters League, the Maine WTR Resource Center, and supported by other groups.

Nonviolent direct action seeks to create such a crisis and foster such a tension that a community which has constantly refused to negotiate is forced to confront the issue. It seeks so to dramatize the issue that it can no longer be ignored.
