Tax Day rally in Bethlehem

Tuesday, April 18, 2017 by DOROTHY GLEW Special to the Bethlehem Press in Local News

With Tax Day approaching on April 18 this year, Americans in cities across the nation participated in a Tax March April 15 to demand that President Donald Trump release his most recent tax returns.

Though no president is required to release his tax income returns, every major party nominee since the 1970s has done so.

In Bethlehem, around 200 people gathered in Payrow Plaza next to Bethlehem City Hall to have their voices heard. The local rally was sponsored by the Bethlehem City Democratic Committee.

“The American people deserve to know what corporations, banks, and foreign investors Donald Trump is beholden to,” said Clyde Thomas, chairman of the committee.

Many of the attendees carried signs which drew the attention of passing motorists who honked in support. Several local organizations chartered a bus to the Tax March in Washington, D.C.
