Volunteering at WRL

December 2008

Volunteers Needed

The War Resisters League designs, produces and distributes thousands of pieces of literature and organizing resources each year, including books, brochures, organizing guides, buttons, t-shirts and a range of current and classic anti-war posters.  We need volunteers to help us fulfill the dozens of orders we receive each week from activists across the country, all working to end war and to create a more peaceful and just society.

War Resisters Block IRS Headquarters, 32 arrested

March 19, 2008 -- Thirty-two people were arrested this morning as they staged a nonviolent blockade at the national headquarters of the Internal Revenue Service in Washington, DC. The protestors had placed yellow police tape saying "WAR CRIME SCENE" across four entrances to the building, including the main entrance on Constitution Ave. and additional entrances on 12th St.

The demonstration was part of a national day of protest marking the fifth anniversary of the invasion and occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan.

Death and Taxes . . . and a whole lot of fun

by Ruth Benn


It’s like a double whammy losing Ralph at this time of year.

He died on February 1, early on in tax season and just as Ed and I were working on the “Where Your Income Taxes Really Go” flyer. It’s also just when baseball season is starting up. Players are heading to spring training and tickets are on sale. Normally, Ralph and I would be talking about how many pie charts to print and whether we would be able to get tickets for opening day at Shea.
