The Military is Not Just a Job, It's 8 Years of Your Life//¿Solo un empleo? No… ¡Son ocho años de tu vida!

*OUT OF STOCK UNTIL FALL 2023*

You’ve probably heard the ads and the recruiter’s sales pitch. Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it? All advertising does. But if military life doesn’t live up to the advertising, you can’t bring your enlistment agreement back to the recruiter for a refund. You are obligated to the military for a total of eight years, including time in the reserves when you could be recalled.

This essential counter military recruitment pamphlet, produced by Project on Youth and Non-Military Opportunities (Project YANO) includes information that should be seen by every person considering joining the military. Activists across the country distribute this flyer in schools, at job fairs and community gatherings.

Copies are available in English or Spanish for $0.20 each plus 20% shipping, or $0.15 for orders of 200 or more!

Death & Taxes

A important film about War Tax Resisters and their motivations. Produced by the National War Tax Resistance Coordinating Committee, Death & Taxes asks:

- Why and how do people refuse to pay for war?
- Where does the money go?
- What are the consequences?
- How does war tax resistance fit into one’s life?

This tightly paced 30-minute film introduces viewers to war tax refusal and redirecting tax dollars to peace, with music by Sharon Jones and the DapKings, Antibalas, Rude Mechanical Orchestra, and First Strike Theatre’s version of “Don’t Pay Taxes” by Charlie King.

Excellent for workshops and presentations with time for discussion.
