Gays to Protest on Tax Day, Demanding "No Taxation With Discrimination"

Highlighting the fact that the government takes tax money from Lesbians and Gays, and yet refuses to grant equal rights such as the right to marry, activists with the DontAmend.com network are planning protests around the country on April 15, Tax Day. In Kansas City, MO, the protest will be at 5:30 pm at the Main Post Office, 315 W. Pershing Road.

DontAmend.com was formed to prevent a proposed amendment to the Constitution which would ban same gender marriages. The Network worked with local organizations around the country on February 14th to host more than two dozen rallies demanding full, equal legal rights for Lesbians and Gays.

"When you take tax money from a group of people and then turn around and say they don't have the same legal rights as others, that's discrimination, pure and simple," said William Rosen, coordinator of the Kansas City DontAmend.com group. "People are going to have to make a choice: stand on the side of equality, or support continued discrmination."

"We'll be out on the streets on April 15th and at other dates in the future because we know that this is the way that civil rights have always been won. Previous generations of civil rights activists have built movements to force reluctant governments to do the right thing. Today we must do the same."

For more information about the Kansas City protest, please e-mail dontamendKC (at) hotmail.com. For information about national activities, go to http://www.DontAmend.com
