Hundreds of thousands of farmers from neighboring states like Punjab, Haryana, and UP marched into Delhi for the past few days. Farmers are protesting against a recent Farm Bills that are against their interests.

The peaceful protests were met by barricades at the borders. As they arrived in a convoy of tractors and on foot, tens of thousands of police and paramilitary troops were deployed to halt their march, leading to clashes with the police. In several places, police fired tear gas shells and used water cannons to try to beat them back.

Farmers should be given permission to protest for their rights. Indian government should rethink the farm bills to ensure the farmers can be guaranteed Minimum Support Price (MSP) for their crops and protection from commercial interests overtaking their land.

We urge the US and Massachusetts governments to raise awareness for the plight of the farmers. The Indian Government does not seem to be backing away from their proposed bills that have been unilaterally rejected by the farmers of India.
