Great Minds At Work

From peaceful warriors comes revolutionary justice.

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (1869–1948), known as Mahatma Gandhi, helped free India from British rule and inspired worldwide civil rights movements with his philosophy of peaceful protest. The note reproduced on our cover was handwritten by Gandhi in 1930 on the day before he committed one of his greatest acts of defiance: breaking the Salt Act. The issue of the British monopoly over salt in colonial India was one that Gandhi had long stood against. Though the salt tax may not have been a problem at the forefront of many minds in the 1930s, it represented all that was wrong with British rule and Gandhi’s challenging of it quickly gained support.

Beginning in Sabarmati Ashram, Ahmedabad, Gandhi and nearly eighty of his followers set out on the morning of March 12th, 1930, walking toward the village of Dandi on the Arabian Sea (about 400km away). Eventually, the procession of marchers grew to over 3km in length! By April 5th, thousands of people had joined the procession and were there to hear Gandhi declare, “I want world sympathy in this battle of right against might.” This immortal phrase, which he wrote down just before symbolically breaking the Salt Act, is inscribed on our cover.
