Posted 5:10 PM 4/17/2012 : Group holding 'Tax Wealth, Not Work' protest at Cherrybell Post Office
TUCSON - If you haven't turned in your tax return yet, you may run in to a group of Tucsonans outside the Cherrybell Post Office who protesting for the "Tax Wealth, Not Work," Day of Action.
Here's what the group had to say about their planned protest:
"Join us as we take back tax day for working families. Working people invest in America with their hard work and their tax dollars. We believe we need a better balance. America can create jobs again and expand the middle class but that means investing in education, roads, bridges and transportation, not more tax giveaways for the 1%." From the leaflet: "Save our postal service and save JOBS. We are especially angry at the threatened loss of hundreds of good paying local jobs and mail service disruption in Southern Arizona. United together -- public sector unions, the entire labor movement, the Occupy movement and our communities -- the time to stand up and push back is NOW!"
News 4 Tucson's Greg Dingrando snapped the photos above of a group of protesters outside the Cherrybell Main Post Office at 1501 S. Cherrybell Stravenue. The Day of Action was sponsored by the Pima Area Labor Federation, Jobs for Justice, and was endorsed by Occupy Tucson at the April 14, General Assembly.
