Mahatma Gandhi - Passive Resisters
It’s a little known part of Gandhi’s life but whilst he was in South Africa he founded three football clubs as part of his work to raise awareness of equal rights and take his movement of non-violent resistance to the people. The three clubs all took the same name - Passive Resisters. The photo above shows Gandhi (marked with the peace symbol) with the Passive Resisters of Pretoria & Johannesburg in 1913.
