WHERE: Public sidewalk in front of Consumer Square, 4755 Commercial Drive, New Hartford, NY 13413 (We will be in front of Applebee’s.) Marches will also be held in Albany, Syracuse, and Binghamton. More information can be found at www.cnycia.org.
WHY: Local citizens will be holding a Tax Day protest in concert with almost 200 other tax day marches and protests around the country on Saturday, April 15, at 12 P.M. Along with hundreds of thousands of people all over the United States and elsewhere in the world, local protestors will be demanding that Donald Trump release his tax returns once and for all. Citizens will also be calling on Congress to oppose President Trump’s tax plan that would give the super-rich tax breaks at the expense of the middle class and working families.
Presidents and presidential candidates have shown the American people their returns for decades. President Trump promised to do so many times during his campaign. Despite the fact that millions petitioned Trump to release his tax records within days of his inauguration, he claimed “people don’t care.” A January ABC/Washington Post poll indicated that 74 percent of Americans wanted to see the president’s returns
Who: The national tax march initiative is supported by the American Federation of Teachers, Americans for Tax Fairness, the Center for Popular Democracy, Indivisible, MoveOn.Org, Our Revolution, the Working Families Party and other organizations. Local sponsors include the Central New York Citizens in Acton, Inc.
