Professor Waugh Speech 11 15 September 2008 Topic: Gandhi’s Salt March to Dandi in March 1930. General Purpose: To Inform Specific Purpose: To inform the audience about the Salt March in 1930. Central Idea: Actions speak louder than words. INTRODUCTION: Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. has said, “Gandhi was inevitable. If humanity is to progress, Gandhi is inescapable. …We may ignore him at our own risk”. The Salt March to Dandi, India consisted of 240 miles and lasted 23 days. It was one of Gandhi’s well known and “most spectacular movements” which played an important role in India’s struggle to freedom from British Colonialism. There are three main points to understand why it is one of the most acknowledged and one of his best protests through his method of Satyagraha, meaning Truth and resolution, are why he chose to protest against the British salt tax, how he brought everyone from different social and economic backgrounds together and how his movement has and will impact people. BODY: A. First, why Gandhi chose the British Salt Tax to protest against. 1. Gandhi was focused on freeing his country from British colonialism and he needed to find a way to do it. 2. The British salt tax was one of the many economic improprieties used to produce revenue to support the British colonialism. 3. The people of India were impacted greatly by this tax.
