Today we have submitted this Declaration of our peaceful non-obedience to the government and refusal to fund the government’s affairs.
We have delivered this declaration today in person to our local “authority”, Hamilton City Hall (Ontario, Canada) with the following words:
“We would like to leave this letter. This is our Declaration. It’s in regards to property taxes. We are stating here that we will not be paying property taxes. And we’re charging the government with the TREASON against people. Please read the details in the letter. We are also returning to you back the papers requesting tax payments you sent us.”
We the undersigned, regard it as due to ourselves, to the cause which we love, to the country in which we live, to publish a declaration expressive of the purposes we aim to accomplish and the measures we shall adopt to carry forward the work of peaceful universal reformation.
