paying tax could make you a war criminal

Interesting talk by Christ Coverdale at the bank of ideas (the empty UBS bank that was occupied in london).

On the 2 March 1929 Britain ratified into uk law, some of the strongest legislation against illegal wars. This Treaty is never mentioned by the Government. But is still part of UK law as confirmed by the Justice department. in a freedom of information request

The General Treaty for the Renunciation of War or the World Peace Act

“It is an offence against the law of England and Wales for a person to commit genocide,a crime against humanity or a war crime, or to engage in conduct ancillary to such an act. This applies to acts committed in England or Wales or outside the United Kingdom by a UK national, resident or person subject to UK service jurisdiction” war law and parliament page 7 . Under the General Treaty for the Renunciation of War that Britain ratified in 1929 classifies the current war as war crimes.

What this means is that under UK law it is a criminal offense to provide any assistant to the UK government whilst it is conducting illegal wars. Currently they are at war with Afghanistan , and recently Libya. But also the act of promoting war with Iran also is illegal.

This assistance includes paying taxes (vat, council tax, capital gains tax, income tax if your self-employed)

A little bit more about the treaty and how it was used to prosecute Germans after the second world war
