Protest of Taxation Without Representation In DC
||Friday, April 15, 2011
Do you think it's wrong that American citizens in DC pay full federal taxes and are under the control of Congress yet have no representation in Congress? Are you ready to do something about it?
The District's leaders have taken the lead, and now its young people are following in their footsteps. Student activists are
leading a peaceful demonstration this Friday, April 15, to protest District residents paying taxes without representation. It is also the day DC Emancipation will be observed. Let's mark that day by reminding America that DC residents are not fully free, and by demanding full democracy.
Will you join in this protest to demand full equality and democracy for DC? RSVP today to be kept in the loop. Below are the details we are releasing right now:
