Gandhia man who used non-violence to free india from british rule.
Gandhi was born on October 2, 1869. He was born in Porbandar, India. Gandhi studied law and advocated for the civil rights of all Indians.
India wanted Independence from the British because the British were discriminating against any person that was not white.
Gandhi received a lot of attention when he created the Indian National Congress in 1894. The Indian National Congress was used to fight against discrimination.
Gandhi used non-violent tactics like marches and protests. For example, the salt march. The salt march was when Gandhi marched 240 miles to the Arabian Sea. When he arrived there he collected salt as a symbolic defiance of the government's monopoly. Other protests he orchestrated were the homespun movement, the burning of the passes, and he also fasted as a way to get peoples attention instead of using violence.
