Death & Taxes: A Primer on War Tax Resistance

Why and how do people  refuse to pay for war? Where does the money go? What are the consequences? How does war tax resistance fit into one’s life?

Twenty-eight people offer their motivations for and methods of resisting the war machine with their tax money. This tightly paced film introduces viewers to war tax refusal and redirecting tax dollars to peace, with music by Sharon Jones and the DapKings, Antibalas, Rude Mechanical Orchestra, and First Strike Theatre’s version of “Don’t Pay Taxes” by Charlie King.
