Panel Discussion: Farmers' Struggle in India
March 20, 2021
Hundreds of thousands of farmers and farm-workers in India have been protesting for over 111 days seeking repeal of the three new farm laws. What started in the Indian state of Punjab as a protest against the deregulation of the agrarian economy and doing away with the limited protections the farmers have had, quickly evolved into the largest mass mobilization in post-colonial India. Despite efforts from the hyper-nationalist ruling party to derail and delegitimize the movement, it continues to grow having cut across class, caste, and gender, and threatens to challenge the prevailing alliance between the state and capital.
Join us as we discuss the development of one of the largest agrarian struggles in the world in recent history!
