It's a violation of rights!!
These new taxes are RIDICULOUS!!!
Something needs to be done about this! The taxes are unbelievably high!
We need to get their attention! As English men, our voices should be heard!
When the taxes were put into action, the colonists were absolutely furious. They believed it was unfair
The Colonists wanted their voices to be heard. They thought to take action as to get their voices out there.
WHAT ARE WE TO DO!??!?
They won't buy ANY of our products!!!!
A way that the colonists tried to be heard was by sending an resolution. The resolution was made by the house of burgesses. A resolution is a formal way to to get an opinion out there.
ugh, FINE... I will make a repeal.
Another way the Colonists tried to get their opinion out to the British was by boycotting. The colonists didn't by any British products as to make the British notice them.
The boycotts effected the British A LOT. Because of the boycotting, the British lost a lot of revenue.
Eventually, the colonists did manage to get their voices heard. A repeal against the taxes was made. The colonists no longer needed to boycott products or try to desperately be heard.
