Although this is a criminal offense, the Histadrut Freelancers Forum announces: "We are starting a tax revolt:
this is what the forum called to its members: "Following the developments of the last day and the worsening of the protest, the Histadrut Freelancers Forum expresses full support for the words of Histadrut Chairman Arnon Bar David this morning, and left In an urgent call to all independents in Israel to start a tax revolt starting from the 15th of next month, the day the monthly taxes are paid to the state, until the legislation is completely stopped
. And obviously to stop the polarization and madness in the country, he supports taking the necessary steps for that and declares - we will not pay taxes to the State of Israel, which is turning into a dictatorship before our eyes.
We did not give a hand to the crash of the self-employed and their families because of the conduct of the state.
The economy and businesses are crashing due to the loss of grip on reality by the government and its leader, who are leading us to the abyss.*
"It is important to emphasize - this is not a political event. The independent public is not divided into left and right, but includes everyone. The harsh reality, the upheaval and the chaos we are in clearly and immediately harms all of us. Businesses from all sectors are already affected here and now and the small independents - regardless of the letters on the note whose name is on the ballot - will not withstand another economic crisis that is already upon us.
*Therefore, the time has come to declare a tax revolt. Starting on April 15, the day the independents pay their monthly taxes to the State of Israel, we call not to pay the tax until the legislation leading us to a complete halt To the disaster*
"Israeli governments for generations did not count the independent public, which numbers about a million people and holds the burden of the economy on their shoulders.
Until today we tried, turned, shouted - no more.
We will not finance a dictatorship."
