TAX DAY PROTESTS IN NEW YORK CITY

*
Led by a marching band we paraded through the theatre district on 42nd St. as well as other mid town streets, from 44th to the General Post Office on 33rd. The GPO was the destination of those mailing their tax returns at the last minute.

War Resisters League leaflets were distributed along the way to large numbers of people enjoying the sights and sounds of Times Square in summer temperatures in mid April.

At the GPO itself, the Grannies Peace Brigade entertained with their sarcastic songs of using the taxes of the 99% to wage war while cutting necessary social services …. followed by street dancing when the band began to play a polka.

There was another large protest group a block away from the GPO, led by the Tax Dodgers…

There were other protest groups in different parts of the city.
