During this day I believe that I would take up Martin Luther King's view on civil disobedience as my own because I see just how he said that not all laws that are legal are just. I believe that not all that is made law is just for all people but only make it just for the majority. King view on civil disobedience is more suitable for this day and age that why people would try to follow his example if they would have to take up civil disobedience.

This workshop was held on March 26, 1958 in Nashville, Tennessee. This was an important turning point in Lewis’s life because here he learned that he could implement his beliefs, of loving everyone, to make a difference in the real world. John Lewis states “ He spoke of Gandhi, this little brown man from India using the way of nonviolence to free an entire nation of people”(Lewis and Aydin 77). In other words, in the first nonviolence workshop he learned about Gandhi and the way he implemented his peaceful beliefs in freeing his country from the British.

India’s leader Mohandas Gandhi (Mahatma Gandhi) was influenced by David Thoreau 's Civil Disobedience arguments while sitting in jail. Gandhi loosely adopted the term “civil disobedience” for non-violent protests and refused to cooperate with injustice. Following his release, he protested the registration law by joining labor strikes and organizing a large non-violent march. After the marches, the Boer government finally agreed to end the most divisive sections of the law. In 1907, he campaigned in South Africa and wrote a translated synopsis of Thoreau 's argument for the Indian Opinion.
Mohandas Gandhi was a “key figure in the Indian struggle for independence.” He worked to use nonviolent ways to fight for equality and change in India. Gandhi was able to unite many groups and “inspired the common people of India to work for change.” In addition, Gandhi advocated using a more traditional approach (Wadley 202). Although Mohandas Gandhi 's satyagraha campaign caused violence, his advocacy for those who were discriminated against in Indian society led to the initial unification of India to gain independence from Great Britain.
Gandhi encouraged the citizens of India to burn all textiles made by the British, and only wear Indian made clothes. This affected the British textiles industry drastically this was because India was one of the largest importers of British textiles during this movement. Homespun gave India a sense of independence from the British. It proved that India can thrive without the help under the British rule. Ghandi said “We must remove untouchability from our hearts and from our lives” “We must defy the british” Not with violence that will inflame their will but with a firmness that will open their eyes.
Ten years after Martin Luther King Jr.’s death, Cesar Chavez (A civil rights leader) writes a rallying article against violence. Chavez also promotes nonviolence (not coincidentally during the 10-year anniversary of Dr. King’s death) and aims to persuade his audience of its effectiveness against oppression. By justifying nonviolence, understanding violence, and describing the uses of nonviolence, Chavez persuades his audience to utilize nonviolence instead of violence. Chavez’s justification of nonviolence, through the use of repetition, is his first step in persuasion. In repeating “we” multiple times throughout the paragraph, can, metaphorically speaking, put everyone under the same umbrella.

The latter two, were both given in 1957, however “The Power of Nonviolence” was given at UC Berkeley, while the latter was given to the Highlander Folk School, a Tennessee institution for training social activist leaders.

Both Civil Disobedience and the Gandhi article are alike based on the fact they both discuss civil disobedience, attending prison, and standing for one’s beliefs. Civil disobedience can be seen as a good thing and a bad thing depending on to what extent one is breaking the laws. Some people may break the law because they feel that it is unfair to them but others break the for the simple fact of doing what they want in order for it to benefit themselves. Laws are meant for the majority which means even if they are not pertaining to certain citizens. Thoreau targeted laws that pertained to him, Gandhi went on strike for the better of his country and people.
