The Salt March
Mahatma Gandhi’s stood against British imperialism in 1930. Called the “Salt March” Gandhi, became a leader in the Indian independence movement. Great Britain banned the sale of selling or having salt. People could only buy from Britain, and were taxed heavily. Followers of Gandhi walked over 200 miles in rebellion of the British tyranny. India became independent in 1947. “When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it—always,” said Gandhi.
