Dandi Salt March
Indien ()
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi led 78 followers on a 387.8 km (241 mile) long march from Sabarmati Ashram, Gujarat, to the coastal town of Dandi, Gujarat, in protest at British India's levy of salt tax on 12 March 1930. The protesters arrived in Dandi on 5 April 1930.
The protest became known as the Dandi Salt March. Gandhi addressed crowds en route, attracting more people to the march. As he arrived at Dandi on April 5, 1930, Gandhi picked up a lump of salt and was immediately arrested for the production of contraband salt.
