Dear Democracy Now! Visitor: We are an independent, ad-free daily news program that serves millions of viewers and listeners each month. Our show is special because we make it our priority to go where the silence is. We put a spotlight on corporate and government abuses of power and lift up the stories of ordinary people working to make change in extraordinary times. We do all of this with just a fraction of the budget and staff of a commercial news show. We do it without ads, corporate sponsorship or government funding. How is this possible? Only with your support. Today a generous funder will match your donation 2 to 1. That means when you give $15 today, your donation will be worth $45. So, if you've been waiting to make your contribution to Democracy Now!, today is your day. It takes just a couple of minutes to help make sure Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else.

Each week, we try to bring to Democracy Now! the voices of citizen activists who are working for social change, but rarely get attention from the mainstream press. We call this segment Living Democracy to highlight how solution- oriented grassroots action can make a difference. This week, with APRIL 15th —- Tax Day—- around the corner, we’ve invited two War Tax Resisters to explain why they refuse to pay federal taxes that support the military budget.

GUESTS:

KAREN MARYSDAUGHTER of the National War Tax Resistance Coordinating Committee, which is coordinating dozens of grassroots actions around the U.S. in this tax season.

ANDREA AYVAZIAN of Western Massachusetts has been a War Tax Resister for 14 years.
