List of Meeting Events on 4-January-1932

4- January-1932 Mahatma Gandhi and other members of his All-India National Congress are back in jail again. After the collapse of the London conference, British authorities cracked down even harder on Gandhi and his followers, and the Mahatma urged Indians to increase their acts of civil disobedience. "Wake up from sleep," Gandhi said as he ordered a boycott of British goods. "Discard foreign cloth. Discard narcotics. Discard violence. Defy all orders calculated to crush the national spirit." The government declared Gandhi's Congress an illegal organization. Under new laws, even peaceful picketing is illegal. The Congress party responded to the crackdown by recruiting more followers and striking more plants.
