The day Gandhi went on the Salt March – level 2


The Salt March was a peaceful campaign led by Mahatma Gandhi against British rule in India. It began on March 12, 1930, when Gandhi and 80 followers started a 390-kilometer journey from his ashram to the Arabian Sea.

The campaign was against the British monopoly on salt production in India, which made it too expensive for many Indians to buy.

Gandhi and his followers walked for 24 days through towns and villages. They were spreading the message of nonviolent protest.

On April 6, 1930, Gandhi reached the coastal village of Dandi, where he and his followers broke the salt law by making salt from seawater. This act inspired many Indians to break the salt law as well.

The Salt March was a significant event in India’s fight for independence.

Difficult words: march (an organized walk), ashram (a place where a small religious community lives), coastal (near the coast), significant (important).

What other nonviolent methods of protest did Gandhi employ to oppose British rule in India?
