Gandhi

Mallorie Hopkins 6th Period

How...

Gandhi's defiance of British colonial laws over the empire's salt monopoly, sparked a wave of civil disobedience that contributed to expelling the British empire. Gandhi and his supporters began a long, expanding march to produce salt and transport it without paying the tax. It did not stop the practice: the British suppressed the march fiercely, arresting tens of thousands, and refused to make any concessions.

Why.....

How it Connects...

Gandhi is a prime example of Civil Disobedience because he follows the fact that "all men recognize the right of revolution; that is, the right to refuse allegiance to, and to resist, the government..." Gandhi resisted the government by going against the idea of taxes on salt in the country. This is an example as to why he is a prime example.
