About the Cover
The cover is a tax resistance poster aquired some time ago by one of the
editors. We would love to credit the source of this poster, but
unforutnately neither the publisher's nor the artist's name appears on it.

We hope Nonviolence Today will promote nonviolence in a broad sense. It is
strictly nonprofit and all editors donate their time and use of personal
resources. The editors for this issue were Jan, Janelle, Jerry and David.
We hope you will continue to support our efforts to promote the understanding
and practice of nonviolence.
