Day 349

Toll 663

Winter Session

While the Narnaund stand-off at the Hansi SP’s office continues, yesterday the Samyukt Kisan Morcha gave a call of large numbers of farmers to reach Delhi’s borders on November 26, Constitution Day, to mark one year of the protests.

From November 29th, as the month-long winter session of the Parliament starts, SKM has decided every day 500 farmers will march into Delhi on tractors to assert their right to protest and raise their demands. The march will be from Tikri and Ghazipur borders every day.

The march will be disciplined and non-violent. The decision is: if police and administration stops the march to Parliament, protesters will protest at the place they are stopped.

The farmers are soon going to complete one year of protest. In spite of all that the cruel weather and the government has thrown at the farmers they have prevailed. The government cannot take them for granted and ignore them. In an RTI filed to learn of minutes of the 11 rounds of meetings with farmers last November to January, the government responded they have no data. In the Parliament the government refused to admit that farmers had died on protest. Current toll being 663, as mentioned above.

Given the huge success of the Farmers Parliament during the Monsoon Session, these month-long marches are a valid way to raise the demand and force the government to repeal the laws.

Fingers crossed!
