Suffragist Tax Resisters Protest at Tax Auction

The Woman and her Sphere blog has published an interesting look back at the Women’s Tax Resistance League — including a postcard featuring a picture from a tax auction and protest held :

Tax Resistance Meeting at Hampstead, : Mrs. Thomson-Price, whose goods have just been sold up for tax-resistance, addressing a crowd on “Votes for Women.”

At Main Line Today, Mark E. Dixon remembers the duelling activists Carl Mau and Robert Anthony. Mau was a jingo sort, who joined forces with Anita Bryant and threw rah-rah flag-waving events for embarrassed draftees, while war tax resister Robert Anthony took the opposite tack, trying to convince those draftees to refuse to let their government enslave them in an evil cause.
