Tax Day Demonstration - The U.S. Deficit Debate is a Crime
Mon, Apr 15, 2013 11:30am until Tue, Apr 16, 2013 1pm
12th & Main, Kansas City, MO

Join us for street theater – the bodies are falling – jobs, education, seniors… all victims of bad U.S. budget choices. It’s a crime scene- vigiling, leafleting and more. Don’t be fooled by multi-national corporations, billionaires and groups like “Fix the Debt!” The deficit is a Trojan Horse used to attack social security, Medicare and other government services for the 99%. We’re Not Broke! We Don’t Need to Cut Social Security, Medicare and Human Needs Programs! We need to: • Cut Pentagon Waste (The Pentagon budget has doubled in the past decade. It funds programs like the F-35 fighter that the Defense Department doesn’t want. It produces fewer jobs than investment in other sectors.) • Close Tax Loopholes & Create Policies Where All Pay Their Fair Share! • Invest In Jobs, Education And Our Future! The demonstration is outside the Bank of America recognizing that BoA is one of the 150+ corporations behind the "Fix the Debt" and other campaigns working to increase profits for multinational corporations and the 1% at the expense of the 99%. This event is organized by the American Friends Service Committee and cosponsored by Jobs Now!
