Throughout the British rule over India, the Indians went through multiple movements to attempt to regain their independence from the invasive country. Through the British control, Indians became unequal, separated, and extremely poor. Three of the most effective and/or important movements that occur include The Massacre at the Golden Temple, The Homespun Movement, and The Salt March. Each of these events had a strong effect and contribution in the national movements in India. The movements that had been initiated by the Indians were peaceful and were only used just to gain back their equal rights in their own country.
This political protest by the Sons of Liberty in Boston disguised themselves as Native Americans and destroyed an entire shipment of tea sent by East India Company. The British government responded harshly which escalated to the American Revolution. This act of civil disobedience was in protest to taxes being imposed on the colonies even though they had visual representation, which in simpler terms meant they had no representation. The colonist saw that the taxes being imposed was unjust, this caused the Boston Tea Party to throw all of the tea that was taxed. In the end of the American Revolution they fought against unjust taxes and improved social progress amongst the
The Americans were under the rules of Britain. The Americans were furious by how they were being treated and controlled by the British. The English were putting high taxes on the Americans and they got mad because they had no say in the matter. Then they had no representation of saying whatever they wanted and they couldn’t speak their mind because they weren’t allowed, however they could start a rebellion to speak to the British and make their voices be heard.
In the 1600s, the British people took interest in India. In 1707 when the Mongol Empire was collapsing, which meant the British had a chance to take over. By 1857 Britain took full, direct control of India. Although the British developed a very strong army, they restricted the freedom of Indians, created national parks, but abused natural resources, and killed almost 60 millions people but brought modern medicine. When the British took over India, they took over pretty much the entire government and created laws that restricted the rights of the Indians.
After the Boston Tea Party, Britain passed these laws to punish Boston and reinforce British control. The laws affected the lives of the Americans and through the Boston Harbour Act, they were unable to utilize the harbour. Due to Britain taking away the people of Boston’s ability to export and import goods, Samuel Adams’ words were valued and Americans wanted Britain to be held accountable for “cutting off our trade with all parts of the world”. Adams was the founder of the Sons of Liberty, a group of merchants, politicians and lawyers, involved in the protest of the Stamp Act. The refusal of the Stamp Act inspired Americans to confront the actions of Britain.
Despite the fact that British rule in India during the Imperial period was extremely negative for the Indian people, it ultimately created an improved Indian nation. The British forced the idea of monoculture, were racist, created unfair trade and economic distress. However, they did provide an education system, improved human rights, promoted peace and created a more modern society for the Indian nation. The British rule began in the early 1600’s.
Salutary Neglect was the policy of the British government which trade regulations for the colonies weren 't strictly enforced and supervision of colonial affairs was loose as long as the colonies remained loyal to the British government and contributed to the economic profitability of Britain. Salutary Neglect led to them forming legislative assemblies in the colonies due to lack of governing influence in North America. Citizens practice their new freedom and formed legislative assemblies leading to the establishment of their own government. The movement towards a governmental system that used legislative assemblies was provoked by the British monarch 's unjust rule. Slavery played only a negligible role in the economy of the northern
Native-born professionals and elites in the Spain were insulted by Spanish kings in order to exercise their power over the citizens of the colonies and to set heavy taxes to them. Therefore, the elites brought about enlightenment to arouse public awareness about the overthrow of government upon
The arrival of Europeans conquistadors to the Americas mainly led to negative consequences for the Native Americans. Essentially, Europeans invaded Latin America to exploit its riches, not caring to preserve the Native American culture but creating a path of destruction wherever they went. Consequently, the Native American culture could not defend itself and withered away. In this paper, I argue that the European invasion was to a great extent destructive to the native culture because it contributed to the decline of native population, the loss of native history and diminished the Native American identity.
This abuse of power ended up affecting many of their citizens. Tarquinius is symbolic of the abuse inflicted by the Tarquin family who was in power over Rome in the fifth century BCE. The heinous act of raping a woman who is the embodiment of Roman values is a metaphor for how the kings were neglecting their values and citizens, while still wanting to assert complete control over them. The people of the time obviously needed to do something and an act such as this is the perfect spark to light a revolution. This tale was a cautionary warning during the first century BCE when the Republic became an Empire.
This Nomadic lifestyle was very important to the sustainability of nature around them and the grounds they were on. Nature suffered immensely after European extortion simply because they didn’t take care of it like the natives did. Entire ecosystems and species of plants as well as some animals vanished because of how Europeans treated the land. The ravaging of the land would continue for several years after the Europeans would arrive and all in the name of progress. A classic example of this would be the industrial revolution, settling Europeans (the British) would now be called Americans after participating in a revolution.
The British were in massive debt following the French and Indian war, therefore they placed taxes on the colonists in order to regenerate some of that money lost. The Sugar Act of 1764 taxed the sale of molasses in hopes to gain some lost money, but this act led the people of Boston to boycott the molasses industry. The Stamp Act of 1765 shortly followed, making colonists buy a stamp with every paper product. The rage the colonists felt over the passing of this act, led the colonies to begin to unify as they together boycotted the trade industry. The Townshend Duties of 1767 imposed taxes on glass, lead, paint, paper and tea, but this only led to the colonist to again boycott the trade of those items and start newspaper attack.
The colonists had no one to tell Britain that the acts and taxes and what they were doing was unfair. In Document 5 it says, “What is to defend [the colonists] against so enormous, so unlimited power?” Meaning that the colonists had no one to speak out for them. Britain didn 't make the acts/taxes to pay off the debt from the war; Britain did it to show the colonists “whose boss. ” The British knew how much power they had and what they were able to do with it.
The British gave colonists many reasons to leave during the 1700’s. While there are many reasons the colonists were justified in leaving Britain, one of the main reasons was unfair taxation on colonials to make Britain money. Another reason was Britain creating their own propaganda to demean the colonists’ idea to create a new government. Furthermore, the British would strip the colonists of many of their rights. Finally, Britain would constantly deny any attempt to find peace between the two countries.
So the question is, What was the Battle of Lexington and Concord and how did it help to start the Revolutionary War? The Battle of Lexington and Concord didn 't just start because someone said hey let 's go kill a bunch of Brits NO! The war started because of unfair treatment and unjust ways of collecting money that were not necessary to the government and that were not helping the colonies at all.
