Activist Sheehan says she has court date today for refusing to pay taxes

blogs.sacbee.com | Apr, 19, 2012

Anti-war crusader Cindy Sheehan said she will appear in federal court today to defend her decision not to pay taxes.

"I refuse to fund the empire's crimes and wars," Sheehan said in a press release. "I feel a certain amount of guilt that my taxes were used to murder my own son."

Sheehan, 54, gained fame as an anti-war activist after her son Casey was killed in the Iraq war.

Her website says that she has been asked to appear in court by the U.S. Attorney on behalf of the Internal Revenue Service.

She also called for a rally in conjunction with a news conference at 10:30 a.m. at the federal courthouse, 501 I St. Her hearing is scheduled for 11 a.m.

In October, she told an Occupy Sacramento crowd that U.S. military spending is the reason for economic misery that prompted demonstrations around the nation.

She told the demonstrators that California taxpayers have contributed tens of billions of tax dollars toward "illegal and immoral wars" waged by the United States.
