We have historical precedent. That's how our ancestors resisted colonialism and made the British perform legal tricks to force us into the state economy.
But Africans disnt budge. They had food, and they used cows as a medium of exchange within and across communities.
1. The obvious is extended family and inter-community relations. People would seek food from neighboring communities. We had ceremonies to integrate people from other communities into ours. So we knew we could ask for help.
The British also tried imposing taxes to force them to work on plantations for cash. Instead, the Giriama traded in Mombasa and used that money to pay taxes.
I don't know details how. We have to create several different strategies like the current boycott of a certain milk brand.
But we need other strategies and boycotts. For example, the betting industry is one way in which our youth are exploited by the same elites who make them despair from joblessness and lack of social growth.
Boycotts implement the thing the state and politicians fear most.
