And now some other international tax resistance news, these from Spain:
- The Farewell to Arms blog of the Delàs Center of Peace Studies covers “Taxes: Responsibility and war tax resistance.” Excerpt (my translation):
…if we pay taxes that maintain the military structure, we are collaborators with the acts and effects of this structure. We either admit this responsibility or exercise civil disobedience against the laws that are against our conscience, as in our era the Movement of Conscientious Objection to military service has done. Some conscientious objectors to military service thought that in order to be consistent, beyond personal military refusal, they must continue in the same vein in their economic behavior with their taxes and they declared themselves war tax resisters, an action that they continue today in their struggle against the tax agency and therefore against the state, redirecting “military taxes” to social projects.
