German Man Claims ‘He’s Fighting for Human Rights’ by Refusing to Pay Tax on TV

German pensioner Reinhard Dowe has been on hunger strike for five weeks. The 70-year old man doesn’t want to pay the obligatory tax on television and radio, which, he believes, contradicts the German Constitution.

Dowe has not paid the tax on TV and radio broadcasting (GEZ-Gebühr or Rundfunkbeitrag) for 1.5 years.
