Gandhi 3: Shaking the Foundations

Gandhi 3: Shaking the Foundations

The salt march is the most iconic event from Gandhi's campaign of non-violent resistance. In 1930 Gandhi and his followers began a month-long march to the coast where he made salt, defiantly breaking a British law related to the taxation of salt production. Explaining his choice, Gandhi said that "Next to air and water, salt is perhaps the greatest necessity of life." Guest: Dr Thomas Weber (Politics and Philosophy, La Trobe University)
