Gandhi was given the choice to give up his first class seat on a train to a white person, or be thrown off the train. He refused to give up his seat, which began to open his eyes about racial inequality and ultimately began his cause.

Gandhi and others refused to fight in WWII unless Britain gave up India. When Britain refused, Gandhi started a “Quit India” movement, although him and 100,000 others were arrested.
