WALLA WALLA -- A "Make Them Pay" demonstration aimed at Bank of America is planned for Monday, which is tax day, at Heritage Square Park downtown.
The demonstration, set for 4 p.m. at the park on Main Street between Colville and Spokane streets, is one of dozens organized nationwide by moveon.org, according to a news release.
"During these difficult economic times, when all Americans are being asked to sacrifice, it is simply wrong that Bank of America is shirking their American duty to pay their taxes," local organizer June McKenzie said in the release. "We are protesting on tax day because corporate tax dodgers have a responsibility to our community and our nation to pay their fair share. We pay our taxes. Bank of America should, too."
