Posting for interest really ...

"The famous 1930 "salt march" by India's independence hero Mahatma Gandhi to defy British colonial rule is being re-enacted for its 75th anniversary."

"It sparked India's civil disobedience movement as thousands joined him on the beach to pick up salt, the production of which was under government control."

The (original) event is [apparently] widely regarded as one that "shook the British Empire to its core"

One has to wonder at the power of such simple, honourable, non-violent protests these days ... perhaps the original event's significance was as much tied to the 'time' in which it took place, as it was to the principles they lay beyond it. (If such binary factors are even appropriate).
