Time to see through the facade. The authorities' intentions were never aligned with the common good to begin with. Their main intentions have been control and extraction of wealth, and they will do whatever it takes to push ahead with it, they are especially keen on hijacking the environment movement.
The Dandi Salt March in the Indian independence movement is a good example of a civilian population's response to ridiculous taxation : break the unfair laws en masse. That's the only way to go about it; no point in negotiating with the exploiters.
