INDIVIDUALS SIGNED BELOW, and the sponsoring organizations of
this campaign, have opposed the war against Iraq as well as the ongoing
occupation. We oppose the policies of “pre-emptive war” and
an “endless” war on terrorism which led to the Iraq war,
which violate human rights and international law, and which have cost
us hundreds of billions of dollars while our states and cities face unprecedented
deficits, and cutbacks of vital services and programs.
We intend to do more than simply oppose these policies with our words,
and we invite you to join us, as we
Hang Up On War!
Each month, most of us unknowingly contribute to the war policies
we resolutely oppose — because every telephone bill includes
a 3% federal excise tax that helps to pay for them.
- Hang Up On War! is campaign for people who want
to “up the
ante” on their nonviolent resistance to the “endless war” policy
while reducing the flow of their money to war.
- Hang Up On War! calls on individuals to refuse
to pay their federal phone tax, an act of civil disobedience which
sends a message to Washington
that says “Not With Our Money.”
- Hang Up On War! encourages participants to take their resisted phone
tax money and give it to groups working to heal the wounds of war.
Please join Hang Up On War! Find out what’s involved with the
information on this website, and then click here to sign your commitment
to resist the federal phone tax.
