Second International Conference on War Tax Resistance and Peace Tax Campaigns

Vierhouten, the Netherlands 1988

Aims of the conference

(formulated by the BWD)

  1. Exchanging and generalising information and experience gained by individuals and groups during War Tax Resistance Campaigns in their local circumstances, e.g. in respect to juridical problems.
  2. Finding and sharing the common denominator in the variety of drives, motives and incentives found among people who actively resist war tax.
  3. Increasing the effectiveness by which our groups offer war tax resistance as a means for civilians to object against war and war preparation and against conflict resolution by violence and military force.
  4. Investigating the need for an international platform for the national groups, which could be used to widen war tax resistance onto an international level.
