They Supported it because they did not want to be ruled over the English Government that they tried to escape from in the first place. And they wanted to prove to the English that they were free and did not want to be ruled by them in any part.

What caused the colonists to boycott English goods?

Actually, they didn't boycott goods as much as it seems. They did what we would do and that is to look for the cheaper price. One of the goods involved was tea. Many goods the colonist bought were from colonial smugglers because they were cheaper. When the British lowed the price of the tea it made the Dutch tea higher in price so the smugglers were loosing money. Two of the biggest smugglers were Hancock and Hamilton . Hancock supported, organizesd and paid for the Son's of Liberty. This was an economic issue and the smugglers were fighting for their lives.
