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:

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