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?

Twenty-eight people offer their motivations for and methods of resisting the war machine with their tax money.
“The greatest changes in history have only come when people are willing to put everything on the line.”
       -- Julia Butterfly Hill

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.

30 minutes
Editing: Carlos Steward, Asheville, NC
