Once he traveled back to India, Gandhi led the protest for India independence from the British Empire. While Gandhi was campaigning the larger groups of people in India started to refuse to do work, resting in the streets, boycotting the courts, and even more reckless things. Gandhi then realized that if the whole India population would protest they would have an colossal impact.
