The Salt March was an important part of the Indian independence movement and a direct action campaign of tax resistance and non violent protest against the British salt monopoly in colonial India.

Mahatma Gandhi walked 24 days 390 km to the sea coast to produce salt without paying tax. When he broke the salt laws in April 1930 it sparked large scale acts of civil disobedience against the British Raj Salt laws by millions of Indians. The campaign had a significant effect on changing world and British attitude towards Indian independence and caused large number of Indians to join the fight for the first time.
