Tamilians are the first martyrs of India’s freedom struggle. [Part-2]
Tamil Speech by S.V.Ramani.

In the part Two, I am explaining about the Non Co-operation Movementand the further consequences in Tamil Nadu. The people of Tamilnadu wereangry with the British Government because of the Rowlatt Act and Jallianwala Bagh tragedy
which occurred in 1919. Gandhiji moved the Non Co-operation resolution at Nagpur Congress session. It was presided by C.Vijayaraghava Chariyar, eminent Nationalist of Tamilnadu. Rajaji acted as the Lieutenent of Gandhiji. He along with
Sathyamurthy and E.V.Ramaswamy Naicker led the non co-operationmovement.

Events of the non co-operation movement: Rajaji was arrested and imprisoned in Vellore jail. Agitations occurred in different places. The leaders and the people boycotted the courts and the government offices. When the Prince of Wales visited Madras in 1921, his visit was boycotted by the congress leaders like Rajaji and Periyar. Agitations infront of toddy and arrack shops were held in various
places of Tamilnadu.

Boycott of Simmon commission: Under the leadership of Sathyamurthy Simon commission was boycotted because there was no Indian member in it. In 1927, the congress volunteers organised a Satyagraha for the removal of the Statue of Colonel Neill (a tyrant of the 1857 Rebellion) erected at Madras. Many were arrested.
You can hear the remaining story of Tamil Nadu in the freedom struggle of India from the notorious British Rulers, through the Tamil speech.
