On "Tax Day," Monday, April 15, more than 50 people representing a countywide coalition of justice and peace groups demonstrated in downtown Cleveland for just and peaceful federal budget and tax policies.
Demonstrators displayed signs and banners calling on federal officials to "Stop the Cuts! Protect Social Security! Grow 'Family-Wage' Jobs! Tax the One Percent! and End U.S. Wars and Occupations!"
Don’t be fooled by multi-national corporations, billionaires and groups like “Fix the Debt!” The deficit is a Trojan Horse used to attack social security, Medicare and other government services for the 99%
