Mahatma Gandhi, April 5, 1930, leading a march to the sea to make salt in defiance of the British salt monopoly. A living symbol of his nation’s indomitable will, Gandhi preferred peaceful demonstrations of popular sentiment to a violent show of force: “You can chain me,” he said, “you can torture me, you can even destroy this body, but you will never imprison my mind.” Image © Bettmann/Corbis.
