Townshend Act, Townshend Revenue Act, 1767

Protest The Townshend



We protested the last tax, the Stamp Act, because we were not getting anything in return. We did not get a spot in Britain's government. The tax money never came back to help us. It was not a fair situation. Do we have any of those benefits this time? Do we have a representative in the British government yet? NO! So why does Charles Townshend think we will accept this tax?

This Is An Outrage!

It's Really About Control

Britain wants us to flood their country with money, but they don't want to help us in any way. They are controlling us too much and very unfairly. They treat us like we are their slaves. We work to pay the taxes for them, and we get nothing back! Slavery is unconstitutional, just like the taxes Britain keeps imposing on us.

Do we really want to let them treat us this way?
