Gandhi has initiated the first collective action among South Africa’s Indian residents and established Tolstoy Farm where families live a simple life in harmony with each other. He proclaims that work is preferable to idleness, if one’s motives are free from desire.
The British government proposes a law for registration of all Indians, the Black Act. At a public meeting, a resolution is drawn up stating that all will resist the Act unto death. The Satyagrahis have come to a turning point: the life-and-death terms of the resolution call for a step beyond ordinary majority vote. Only a vow taken in the name of God will support an individual’s observance of the resolution.
The Indian leader Shree Gokhale visits South Africa and secures from the government a public promise to repeal two racially discriminatory laws. When the government breaks that promise, a miners’ strike is organized. Led by Gandhi, the miners and their families join the Satyagraha army and march to the Transvaal border.
