Happy Vaisakhi to all who are celebrating this historic and religious festival. During this time let’s remember the Indian farmers and their families who have been protesting in India for months demonstrating over the government's farm laws which is ruining their livelihoods.
Indian farmers will mark their 100th day of protest on Saturday — with plans to block a six-lane highway outside New Delhi. The farmers are protesting new corporate-friendly laws they say will ruin their livelihoods and leave them more vulnerable to debt.
Thousands of Indian farmers are protesting due to the stress & pressures of globalisation. Their message was heard loud & clear in parliament via a (petition) debate signed by 100,000 people. We salute the farmers & the journalists who endanger their lives carrying their message.
With social media solidarity, protesting Indian farmers win global attention
