In 1764 Parliament passed the Sugar Act this lowered taxes on molasses.
¨I hope this will stop smuggling!¨
¨We came up with a plan to lower taxes , It's called the Sugar Act!¨
¨Maybe the colonist will pay their taxes now!!¨
¨So am I!¨
The Sugar Act angered most colonist. The colonist thought that the Sugar Act and other new laws were not fair and a violated their rights. The colonist also believed that they had a right to a trial and they should be viewed as innocent until proven guilty.
¨I am outraged by these new laws!!¨
¨Colonist thought they weren´t safe in their own homes because officers would come and barging in looking for stolen goods.¨
(colonist thinking inside their home) oh noo they found me!!!!
¨You have been smuggling goods and not paying your taxes!!¨
