People Marching Across America
People marching across America demanding that President Trump release his tax returns. Organizer’s of New York’s “Tax march,” one of more than 150 across the US, and beyond, are trying to bring attention to the fact that our president refuses to disclose his tax history. Tax returns, from his predecessors, have been going on for more than 40 years.
Manhattan’s March Attracts 5000 Protestors
The marches are taking place in major US cities such as Washington, Los Angeles, New York, and so forth. Marches are also being planned in Europe, Japan and New Zealand. The Manhattan march started at Bryant Park. The marchers walked up Sixth Avenue. The event was scheduled to end at Central Park.
The President said he would release his tax returns during his campaign. However, he always had a reason why he did not, usually that there is an ongoing audit by the Internal Revenue Service. In September he told ABC News, “I don’t think anybody cares, except some members of the press.” The IRS, has contradicted Trump’s statement by saying he can release his tax returns even while he is under audit.
Many marchers carried signs while others wore the pink signature hats from the Jan 21 Women’s March that drew millions and helped create the Tax Day protest. Other marchers carried plastic chickens while a few others wore Russian-themed hats.
