Mohandas Gandhi

Mohandas Gandhi and the people of India were very upset with the British rule because of the heavy taxes and unfair treatment.

The British soldiers were using excessive force against native Indians and they would beat them if they didn't follow laws.

Gandhi opposed the excessive force used by the British and the heavy taxes on salt by using methods of non violence and civil disobedience.

Gandhi lead a 241 mile march to the sea where people would get their own salt to oppose the British tax.

Gandhi also led the homespun movement to oppose the British textile industry. This inspired Indians to stop relying on the British for everyday good when they had the materials to create them themselves.

Gandhi's techniques forced the British to decolonize India and they gained their independence officially on the 18th of July, 1947.
