It may be the biggest national demonstration since the women’s marches in January.
Tens of thousands of people from across the country are expected to take part in a mass march on Saturday, to demand that Donald Trump release his tax returns – and raise awareness about economic justice.
Since tax wonks rarely get their own mass protests, expect some creative signs. One proposed slogan circulating on Facebook: “Grab them by the net operating loss carry function.”
The march was sparked by a single tweet by the law professor Julie Taub, after she watched a video of Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway declaring that Trump was “not going to release his tax returns” and that voters “didn’t care.”
“That annoyed me … people do care,” said Taub, whose research focuses on corruption and the links between politics and money.
Buoyed by the huge turnout at the women’s march, she posted on Twitter.
Her idea went viral and became Tax March.
