“..I shall proceed with such co-workers of the Ashram [Community] as I can take, to disregard the provisions of the Salt Laws.” (Document A, Gandhi). Gandhi knew he had people to back him and fight, (nonviolently speaking), with him. Even before the Salt March truly began people lined up behind Gandhi and joined him in his march for freedom. The loyalty of these people is what really kept the movement alive.
Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., and Mandela Make a Change Mohandas Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., and Mandela, all had a vision of a world where equality was amongst the different races. The leaders decided to lead protests in favor of equality. This led to a lot of diversity between views. Violence broke out against the protesters but they were determined to fight for their beliefs. Peacefully protesting, completely avoiding violence, and accepting punishments, were all reasons these leaders’ movements could be considered successful today.
The story says that “The Association was a group of people who helped farm workers have better rights and better pay.” Chavez and his supporters successfully improved the lives of farmers and farm workers. The story states, “Through boycotts, hunger strikes, and marches, they made a difference for everyone. ”These days he still inspires community activists and politicians. The story states, “His speeches about justice, community, and education still resonate…”
The most challenging factor in this strike was keeping all the other farm workers fighting for their right as Mexican American farm workers. Some of the supporting men on the strike were starting to resort to the same violence they received from their employers. Cesar devoted this thought from his head as well as the men who came up with it, because he believed that nonviolent actions forced you to be more creative, in other words, it lets you keep control of the offensive, which is highly important in winning any contest, or in this case protest,
In the story, he points out how mankind has always used war to deal with conflicts since the beginning of time. Since that evolution of time we send our soldiers to war, so we do not have to go ourselves. The difficult situation is going from training to be in war, but coming home to not having any training to deal with the traumatic memories one carries. The speech Hector Garcia gave during his TedTalk conference is effective in using the rhetorical analysis, to convince the audience as well as viewers of why we need to help soldiers with their suffering with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder).
The audience that Chavez is addressing is very familiar with Dr. King, and the troubles he went through so it is not hard at all to relate to the audience with ideas of Martin Luther King. “ Nonviolence provides the opportunity to stay on the offensive, and that is a crucial importance to win any contest.” With subject of violent an nonviolent means is so important to almost everyone that it makes almost everyone stand on their toes. With the subject Chavez does a good job of stating “we” instead of “I” because of
The late twentieth century is the pinnacle of civil rights movements in the United States of America. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was one of many who held America’s hand into this time of racial metamorphosis, he was one of the main leaders of the Civil Rights until his tragic and violent assassination. To venerate the marking of ten years since King’s death, Cesar Chavez-- a labor union organizer and civil rights leader-- continues to uphold/argue King’s ideals of peaceful protest in this newspaper article by incorporating distinctive diction, alongside contrast and then progresses to reason with the morality and beliefs of the general american populace. At the start of the text, Chavez bluntly states to the reader the partnership of nonviolent
In “Lessons of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.” there were 3 specific cases that stood out where you can see Chavez’s uses words to influence people. He was speaking to a crowd at a protest for the anti-pesticide movement and the people there mostly supported him, but they still needed to be inspired to take action. Chavez is saying how that they have been fighting this for a while and that “it should be clear to all of [them] that there is an unfinished agenda” and that although they’ve started working, they still “have miles to go before [they] reach the promised land” (13). Here Chavez uses charged language to appeal to his audience’s emotions. He wants them to realize that they still have a lot of
“¡Si se puede!” This was the rallying cry of the most influential farm laborers union of the late 20th century. A motto that inflicted hope and confidence in the tired farm workers in California and Arizona. This quote described Cesar Chavez’ life, from his childhood to death. Chavez was an important figure in American History because he improved the lives of farm workers, the reason we have food on our table.
The government told the human race that nothing is wrong, it was just the citizens’ fear of the worst. So people did not worry about their lack of food or unsafe working conditions because they had no reason to distrust the government. They never realized that their idea of a utopia slowly slipped through their grasp. Rather than maintaining utter perfection in respect of laws, politics, customs, and conditions, the government remained in oppressive societal control; everything appeared ideal, but once examined closer, the true horrors came to light.
Cesar Chavez is an honorable hero that we should be all inspired by his accomplishments. After Cesar Chavez started working as a farm worker, he started to care about how people were treated at work, especially the poor and people of other nationalities. He believed that everyone should
The farmers had experienced so much, and taxes had affected them profoundly to the point where they wanted to overthrow the government in control. In order to do this they needed to fight for change, so at first, they began handing out petitions for paper cash, bring down taxes and judicial reforms. This was the initial step of building up another kind of government. However, there were no signs of modification that had been executed by the government, so farmers had chosen to arrange a new plan. The plan was to just sit outside of a variety of courts and wait until they would close everything down.
“For centuries the Church held the belief that they could only provide the information. This information was all a monopoly in the murals, stained glass, and decorated paraphernalia of shrines and altars. The educational activities of the clergy thought there was an awesome
Martin Luther King and Abraham Lincoln were both very famous and respected in their own way. Back then and right now. Martin Luther king was famous and respected for his willingness to fight for the rights of his fellow people no matter how hard it was to stand up for themselves at the time. People were dying and getting locked up in jail but still he didn 't let that stop him and he just stayed focus on a brighter future for African Americans.
But when he rallied people to action, he called them specifically to non-violent action. He was passionate to see the conditions of his people improve, but he was not willing to further the pain that had already carried on too long through slavery and war. King spoke strongly against violence with sayings such as, “Violence must not come from any of us, and if we become victimized with violent acts or intent, the pending daybreak of progress will be transformed into a gloomy midnight of retrogress.” and, “We cannot win with violence—it is immoral. It is also impractical…
