My fellow Indian people. I am Mohandas Gandhi. I was born into a in-between category household in the little province of Porbandar. I have a married woman who I have been married to for 48 old ages and have had four kids with. I have studied jurisprudence in London. but have had small success. I went to South Africa to make legal work and experient bias for the first clip at that place. Due to this favoritism I have become an advocator for the rights of all Indians. This is why I’m here to speak to you now. Our people are politically and economically oppressed by the British. I believe that our people should be treated merely as others are. I have learned that we can non merely collaborate with the British. we need to go independent! The British have shown the inhuman treatments of imperial regulation at the Amritsar Massacre in 1919. British military personnels under Brigadier-General Reginald Dyer opened fire on an unarmed crowd. Almost 400 of the 5. 000 work forces. adult females and kids present died. We must move on the unfairness of the British regulation in India. The British have passed many improper measures. monopolies. and Torahs. Under the Rowlatt Acts the colonial Indian authorities could collar suspects without a warrant and imprison them without a test. The Acts besides curtailed imperativeness freedom. The British have made it illegal to do your ain goods and we are forced to purchase British goods. such as fabric.
To accomplish independency we shall non utilize force. Violence will non work out anything and will non assist us to be independent. We must strike or halt working. boycott or garbage to purchase the British goods. Fasting or non eating will assist acquire world-wide support in our motion for independency. Civil noncompliance is one of the better types of non-violent protests. Civil noncompliance is when you refuse to obey unfair Torahs. Non-violence has the power to alter men’s Black Marias. However. non-violent protests are much easier said than done. I am traveling to take a Satyagraha run. Satyagraha or “truth force” is the interior strength to assist digest the troubles of non-violent opposition. It is traveling to be really hard to do personal forfeits. but we must make this for the good of India! I have gone to imprison before. and if I go once more I will be proud. as should you. for assisting India. I am shiping on a March for salt following twelvemonth. in protest against the Salt Acts. The British have gone every bit far as to do it a offense to have salt. which is a natural mineral. non bought from the authorities. I wish that you join me on my walk to demo civil noncompliance and to alter the political and economical class of India forever.
I have a dream that someday India will be an independent state. free from British regulation. I wish India will go a united secular province. where Church is separate from State. I want people from different faiths to be able to acquire along in the same state. I want India to be a topographic point where everybody is equal. and cipher is discriminated.
