Maui Political Action Group to Protest on Tax Day
By Wendy Osher
A political action committee on Maui holds a “Make Them Pay Tax Day Protest” this afternoon in Kahului. The MoveOn.org Political Action group is urging a dozen corporations, including banks, internet companies and oil giants, to pay their share of taxes in America.
“We are protesting on Tax Day because corporate tax dodgers have a responsibility to our community and our nation to pay their fair share,” said Jeanie Vance, regional organizer for MoveOn.org.
The Maui event is part of a larger nationwide Tax Day campaign organized by the group to advance a progressive agenda.
Participants at “Make Them Pay” event will protest outside of a bank branch on Ka’ahumanu Avenue at 4 p.m. today, Monday, April 18, 2011.
MoveOn.org Political Action is a political action committee powered by 5 million people who believe in the power of small donors and grassroots action to elect progressive leaders to office and to advance a progressive agenda.
