The British Lion Shows Its Claws 1930.

The British Government in India, pictured as a lion, was thoroughly infuriated by the mass civil disobedience movement which followed Gandhi's breaking the salt law. There were violent disturbances in various places, to which the Government reacted by unloosing all the force it had at its disposal against the Satyagrahis. Gandhi wrote at that time: "If we are to stand the final heat of the battle, we must learn to stand our ground in the face of cavalry or baton charges and allow oursleves to be trampled under horses' hooves, or be bruised with baton charges."
