Took these coming home from a training I co-hosted with a few others on non-violent direct action as part of the 99% Spring. Our group of about 100 was part of a nationwide movement of over 100,000. We came together in community centers, churches, campuses and public places to say "enough is enough". Time for the 1% to pay their share. Time for corporations with record profits in the billions to pay taxes, rather than get refunds! The percent of revenue from the 1% is at its lowest in decades. We are all sacrificing- why aren't they even doing their fair share? Read more here.

Time to rise up!

If you are local - join us tomorrow on the steps of the Kingston Post Office- 90 Cornell St, Kingston, NY- 12 to 1PM- for a Tax the 1% Rally! We will be (literally) blowing the whistle on the system rigged to benefit the 1% at the expense of the rest of us.
