In the year of 1770. Philadelphia’s Grand Jury took up the fight, and it went beyond the purely negative tactics of refusing to indict colonists and proposed a positive program of protest against the British tax on tea.
The jurors denounced the use of the proceeds of the tea tax to pay salaries of royal officials in the colony. They declared their support of the non-importation agreement recently reached by the importers of Philadelphia and, in addition, recommended that Pennsylvania attempt to "promote union with the other colonies" in order to seek redress of their collective grievances.
As a start for such co-operative action, the jurors pledged themselves to work for a united colonial program of non-consumption of British goods.
