Pay for war? Modernize nuclear weapons? Not with my taxes! That’s the rallying cry of war tax resisters. The weekend will explore legal options for war tax resistance as well as civil resistance to war taxes with presentations by local activists and resisters from around the country. In addition to the conference, participants will join a protest of the new nuclear weapons parts plant being built in Kansas City.
