Patriotic Tax Day Protest Rally, 4/15 in Albany

From Bethlehenm (NY) Indivisible:

Bethlehem Indivisible, a newly formed community action group, will be leading their first action: a Patriotic Tax Day Protest Rally in Albany NY. The red white and a blue rally will be held on Saturday, April 15, 3:00-5:00 p.m., At the NYS Capital, Capital West Park, Albany NY.

Bethlehem Indivisible is a group of citizens that have banded together in the wake of the 2016 presidential election. We are organizing to resist the President’s hateful agenda and to pursue a more progressive platform.

In solidarity with tax day protests all over the country, we will demonstrate on Saturday, April 15 to make three clear points.
1) We demand that President Trump release his taxes; it’s now a matter of national security.
2) We believe taxes are patriotic and that it is almost treasonous for Trump to think only losers pay taxes. At our rally, we will wear red white and blue and wave and carry flags.
3) We’ll rally in support of the pending NYS legislation (A04072 and S00026) referred to as “Tax Returns Uniformly Made Public Act,” (Also known as the T.R.U.M.P. act) which states that to be on the ballot for office in NYS, one must be willing to release the previous 5 years of returns.

Speakers include:
State Assemblymember Phil Steck
State Assemblymember Patricia Fahy
Mayor of Albany Kathy Sheehan (question due to family tragedy)
Albany Common Council President Carolyn McLaughlin
Citizen speakers

Music by members of the HS band The Conscious Club
