Gandhi was born on October 2nd 1869. Growing up was a little difficult for young Gandhi because his parents shipped him to a law school in London to learn westernized government. Gandhi had a mission to help Indians who were struggling with civil rights.

Gandhi's first act of of his non-violent campaign against Indians and not having civil rights was the burning of passes. The passes were created so that the British could identify Indians only. Gandhi went against these pass laws by getting a group of fellow Indians to burn there passes with him.

This is a example of a pass that was used by a Indian and enforced by british
The British have controlled India since the 1600's
British made Indians become a "one crop country" a one crop country is a country that grows one cash crop to sell out to other country. Indians were required to buy British goods.

Gandhi's most notable non violent protest is known as the "salt march". The salt march was a march of Hindus and Muslims. The march was 240 miles from Sabarmati Ashram to Dandi. It was all to protest British rule.
