South Africa and India have marked the 125th anniversary of a significant moment in their histories – when Mahatma Gandhi was forced off a whites-only train.

After his experience, Gandhi began a campaign, to put an end to racial discrimination and oppression, through non-violent means.

This is seen as the Indian independence leader’s first act of civil disobedience.
