Dear War Tax Resisters and War Tax Resistance Supporters in Maine,

You are invited to attend the annual Maine statewide workshop and gathering of war tax resisters and supporters on Saturday, February 12th, 2011, at the Maine Equal Justice Project office, 126 Sewall St., Augusta, Maine.  See the attached flyer for a schedule and other details. In case of bad weather on February 12th, call 525-7776 before 8 am or the previous evening to see if the meeting is postponed to the snow date of February 13th, same time and place. Whether you are interested in beginning war tax resistance, have been or are a resister, or want to learn more about how to do it, this meeting will provide information and help you decide what new directions and actions you can take.

Directions to Maine Equal Justice –  From I – 95 (from south or north or west)

Take Exit 109A Augusta. On the ramp there is a fork, bear right (Augusta) onto Western Avenue.  (From Lewiston/Winthrop, take Route 202 into Augusta, where it becomes Western Avenue.) Take Western Avenue to the 4th set of traffic lights (the Armory will be on your left and Fire Station on your right) and turn right onto Armory Street. Armory Street swings to the left around a big corner and turns into Capitol Street. Go down the hill on Capitol St. to the traffic light at the intersection with Sewall Street. You will see the State House with the Dome. Go right on Sewell St. down to MEJP at 126 Sewall, right hand side, grey house.


Directions to Maine Equal Justice –  From the East (Route 3/Belfast or Rt. 17/Rockland or Rt. 27/Wiscasset) Take Route 3 or 17 or 27 to Cony Traffic Circle in Augusta on east side of Kennebec River. Go from the circle onto the Memorial Bridge (just after Border Trust on the circle) to traffic circle on other side. Continue straight through the circle onto Western Avenue (four lanes). Take Western for two short blocks to the first traffic light (Sewall St., federal building on left side, Flo’s flowers on the right). Turn left, go one long block thru another light, then look for 126 Sewall St. on the right.                                                                                         For carpooling or questions, contact Larry Dansinger at 525-7776 or

The morning session (10 AM-noon) will have two concurrent workshops, one for people new to war tax resistance, those considering it, and those just wanting more information, and one for more experienced resisters.
Lunch will follow from 12-1 (bring food to share for a potluck, kitchen is available).
The afternoon session (1-3 PM) will primarily focus on Tax Day activities on or before April 15 and how to promote WTR in this atmosphere of war. We will also discuss connections to national WTR campaigns and to Maine’s Bring Our War $$ Home campaign.
