The Dharasana salt works protest, and Walker's telling of it:
They walked, both Hindu and Muslim alike, with heads held high, without any hope of escape, from injury or death. It went on and on into the night. Women carried the wounded and broken bodies from the road until they dropped from exhaustion. But still, it went on and on. Whatever moral ascendancy the West held was lost here today. India is free, for she has taken all that steel and cruelty can give, and she has neither cringed nor retreated.
