Ninth International Conference on War Tax Resistance and Peace Tax Campaigns - Hirschluch, Germany 2002

Country report from Denmark

We have developed a law proposal for peace tax, which has been discussed with a member of a left wing party here. He said, that he liked it, but it had no possibility at the moment. It was in 1996(?). Since we have not discussed with politicians, but have plans to go to another party in parliament ‘The Radicals’ which are a center party in opposition now. In the former government the head of the party was a minister off economy and she is a former member of a peace organisation “Women's International League for Peace and Freedom” - so we hope we can ‘sell’ the idea to her.

The name will be: “Fredsskat i Danmark”.
