Farmers Protest: Toll crosses 500

   Posted by: aman   in Other, Punjab

The toll at the #FarmersProtest has crossed 500.

The longest continuous large protest since Independence has faced extreme weather conditions, the virus, but most of all government apathy.

It reminds me of the line all of us from Panjab learn as children. That is how we know our history. Yet, to see it play out as adults – with a minor name change – shows us how social systems change from to democracy, rulers change to leaders, but power and hegemony stays intact.

Thank you Anu Sandhu, Amar Mander, Jai Singh Sandhu. We have this number because of your constant and diligent efforts. Thank you Baljeet Kaur for help with translation.

Condolences and Salute!
