Several groups will hold a rally Monday to speak out against global military spending.
The rally, called "Our Tax Day, Not Theirs," will be from noon to 2 p.m., Monday, outside the Squirrel Hill Post Office at Darlington and Murray avenues.
"As we file our taxes on April 15, half of every dollar spent in the annual discretionary budget feeds the Pentagon," event organizers wrote in a press release. "That is neither what we need nor the spending priorities that a majority of people support. We are calling for a change to our national spending priorities on Tax Day."
The rally is being sponsored by the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom, American Friends Service Committee PA Program, Pittsburgh Raging Grannies, Coalition for Peace Action and the Thomas Merton Center.
