Tax Day Protest--No Tax Dollars for Colombian Death Squads

Protest/Vigil on Monday, April 16--Tax Day
5pm Pioneer Courthouse Square
6pm Procession to Post Office
Come and join us in opposition to Plan Colombia, and billions of US tax dollars going to support the misnamed "War on Drugs", death squads, defoliation, and the worst humanitarian crisis in the americas.
We will have literature to distribute, several speakers recently returned from Colombia, theatre, and a vigil to raise awareness about this latest expansion of the 50-year old colonial war on the poor, that the corporate press keeps the public in the dark about.
Afterwards we will have a procession to the Main Post Office to bring the message home to last-minute taxpayers.
