Raging Grannies at Tax Day Protest
At a tax day action at the Arcata Post Office today, the Raging Grannies sang and activists from the Redwood Peace and Justice Center conducted a penny poll. Literature from the War Resisters League was handed out. The activists seek to make the pulic aware of how much of their income tax money goes to the military. According to the War Resisters League that figure is 54% or $1,449 billion.
