In 1773 Boston patriots threw tea overboard, a boycott to protest the tax on tea. In 1930 Ghandi led the "salt march", a boycott to protest the tax on salt. In 1955 Montgomery residents stopped riding the buses, a boycott to protest segregation. Each sparked much greater and successful movements. They did not wait for legislation to be passed because governments don't listen to protest, they listen to dollars!
Don't give them your money! It is the most effective lever to pry loose corporate control of government. Boycott corporations!
