Call to Action: Tax Corporations Before Freezing Pay and Cutting Services
The Institute's New Economy Working Group joins US Uncut DC and calls on you to join protests linking tax avoidance by U.S. corporations and banks to proposed service cuts and pay freezes.
The “progressive tea party” has been born. Inspired by the UK Uncut movement, the popular revolutions sweeping through North Africa, and articles in the Nation and Washington Post, activists in Mississippi, Chicago, New York, California, Maine, Oklahoma, North Carolina, Washington DC, and elsewhere have started US Uncut to mobilize against corporate tax cheats who are costing America billions of dollars each year and forcing the government to propose deep cuts to vital services and pay freezes for hard-working families.
The first protests will be in conjunction with our sisters and brothers around the world as part of an international day of action. The Washington DC protest will be held somewhere in the Dupont Circle/ Farragut North area with the exact time and location to be announced later. For more information or if your organization would like to endorse this call to action, please email USuncutDC@gmail.com. Follow us on twitter @USuncutDC and facebook.
