Global Non-Violence: MLK, Ghandi and Nelson Mandela


Ghandi is internationally revered as a man of peace but his role in creating the entire non-violent movement in the 1950s and 1960s is often not appreciated. While his work in India is known, his work in South Africa is not known.



Before Ghandi liberated India he worked as a lawyer and a non-violent peace organizer in South Africa. Ghandi began the Satyagraha campaign in South Africa. This non-violent campaign for the "truth" became a model for all the non-violent protests of the twentieth century - from the civil rights campaign in America to the campaign against apartheid in South Africa. Ghandi described Satyagrapha as strength through practising non-violent methods.

Ghandi wrote: Truth (satya) implies love, and firmness (agraha) engenders and therefore serves as a synonym for force. I thus began to call the Indian movement Satyagraha, that is to say, the Force which is born of Truth and Love or non-violence, and gave up the use of the phrase "passive resistance", in connection with it, so much so that even in English writing we often avoided it and used instead the word "satyagraha" itself or some other equivalent English phrase.

Nelson Mandela was directly influenced by the work of Mahatma Ghandi and the Satyagraha movement. Harris Majeke, South Africa's ambassador to India said that "While Nelson Mandela is the father of South Africa, Mahatma Gandhi is our grandfather," "Mandela was inspired by the Satyagraha campaign led by Gandhi. It was a compelling act of passive protest against oppression This would later inspire the formation of the African National Congress and strengthen Mandela's belief in our shared humanity."



Nelson Mandela was born to the Thembu royal family in Mvezo, British South Africa. He studied law at the University of Fort Hare and the University of the Witwatersrand before working as a lawyer in Johannesburg. There he became involved in anti-colonial and African nationalist politics, joining the ANC in 1943 and co-founding its Youth League in 1944. After the National Party's white-only government established apartheid, a system of racial segregation that privileged whites, he and the ANC committed themselves to its overthrow.

Mandela rose to prominence for his involvement in the 1952 Defiance Campaign and the 1955 Congress of the People. He was repeatedly arrested for seditious activities and was unsuccessfully prosecuted in the 1956 Treason Trial. Although initially committed to non-violent protest, in association with the SACP he co-founded the militant Umkhonto we Sizwe in 1961 and led a sabotage campaign against the government. In 1962, he was arrested for conspiring to overthrow the state and sentenced to life imprisonment in the Rivonia Trial.

The Illuminati Murdered Mandela while in prison. The man who was released as Nelson Mandela was not Mandela, he was an Illuminati imposter. His wife was murdered and an imposter was created for her as well. The entire history of the Mandela's after Nelson was supposedly released from prison was an Illuminati hoax. That's why there was so much corruption later associated with the Mandelas.

The reason MLK didn't turn towards violence in his struggle for civil rights was because of the lesson of Nelson Mandela, who had started off in non-violent protest but then later turned to sabotage when non-violence was not ending Apartheid. MLK knew that Mandela was murdered as soon as he was taken to prison. MLK knew that if he turned violent, they would take him to prison and murder him or murder him on the street.

MLK also took inspiration from Ghandi for his non-violent civil rights campaign. Ghandi's philosophy became the core of MLK's own social resistance. MLK wrote in his autobiography: Like most people, I had heard of Gandhi, but I had never studied him seriously. As I read I became deeply fascinated by his campaigns of nonviolent resistance. I was particularly moved by his Salt March to the Sea and his numerous fasts. The whole concept of Satyagraha (Satya is truth which equals love, and agraha is force; Satyagraha, therefore, means truth force or love force) was profoundly significant to me. As I delved deeper into the philosophy of Gandhi, my skepticism concerning the power of love gradually diminished, and I came to see for the first time its potency in the area of social reform. ... It was in this Gandhian emphasis on love and nonviolence that I discovered the method for social reform that I had been seeking.



Ghandi was assisinated, as was MLK and Mandela by the Illuminati. Their non-violence protest was essentially a protest against the Illuminati. They were protesting the tyranny of the Illuminati and for that they were all murdered by the illuminati.
