War Taxes Paid Under Protest!

On Thursday 17th January, War Resisters' International, paid war taxes that had been withheld for five years, under protest to HM Revenue and Customs. Since 2007, WRI has been withholding a proportion of PAYE as a form of protest against Britain's military policies. In 2011, the UK's military spending was £39 billion. This has risen almost 20% since 2002 1. This puts the UK fourth in a country list of military expenditure – above Saudi Arabia, France, Germany and Brazil.
