TUESDAY, April 25, David Hartsough, Tax Resister  
100 Years of Peace and Justice Speaker #4:
In addition to all of David Hartsough’s accomplishments in the peace and justice area, he has now decided to become a tax resister. His recent letter to the IRS states that he is paying 50% of his taxes to the Dept. of Health and Human Services, and the other 50% is being contributed to organizations working for peace and justice and programs meeting human and environmental needs in the U.S. and around the world.
His talk promises to be informative, provocative and inspiring. I hope you will be there.
(More on David: a California based anti-war activist, co-founder of the Nonviolent Peaceforce, and an initiator of the World Beyond War movement, Hartsough has been actively working locally and internationally for nonviolent social change and peaceful resolution of conflicts since he met Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1956. In 1961 Hartsough participated in sit-ins aimed at pressuring shop owners in Arlington, VI to desegregate their lunch counters. Over the next several decades, Hartsough joined a variety of peace efforts in such far-flung locations as the Soviet Union, El Salvador, Mexico, and Kosovo.
