You are invited to participate in a Tax Day Rally on Saturday, April 15 at noon on the steps of Portland’s City Hall. Following the City Hall Rally, there will be a Resistance event at the nearby First Parish Church, 425 Congress Street, Portland.
The Saturday Rally will include a demand to President Trump to release his tax returns so the public will know his potential conflicts of interest and if he has financial ties with President Putin and other Russian officials. The Rally will also be about holding the Trump and LePage administrations accountable for their tax and economic policies.
Tax Day Rallies are taking place throughout Maine and the country. Rallies will include dynamic speakers, music, chants and signs according to a press released by MarchForth, one of the hosts of the Tax Day Rally.
Speakers will include State Representative Erik Jorgensen; economist Marianne Hill; Phil Bartlett, chair of the Maine Democratic Party and a State Senator; Kim Matthews, a former attorney in Maine; Kevin Concannon, former Commissioner of Maine DHS and former Undersecretary of the US Department of Agriculture under President Obama; and Richmond attorney, Alice Knapp of Maine AllCare.
Jennifer Jones, of MarchForth, stated in the same press release: “with the recent proposed budgets of President Trump and Governor LePage the issues of tax and economic fairness and justice have risen to the top of the Resistance movements agenda,”
MarchForth is an organization formed by a group of women who attended the Women’s March in Washington, D.C., on January 21, 2017. MarchForth, the Greater Portland Indivisible, Rally4Justice and Rosemont Resists are all hosts of the Tax Day Rally.
