Mock Parliament

From tomorrow, until the end of the Monsoon session, the Samyukt Kisan Morcha will send 200 delegates each day to Jantar Mantar to protest the 3 anti-farmer Farm Laws and demand legalisation of MSP.

At the protest venue, the farmers will conduct Mock Parliament. Urban middle class must be accustomed to Mock Parliament, mock UN when children participate in such activities at school. Those activities are designed to give children a sense of real democracy. However, we know real democracy is inverted in our country.

That is why, at the protest site, through the Mock Parliament, famers will present a model of how the Parliament should be run. How debates should be conducted, how proceedings must be followed, how Bills must not be bulldozed. This will be a lesson for the nation.

The Delhi Police has still not given permission. In the eventuality of being barred from conducting the Mock Parliament, the farmers have decided to court arrest. One by one, day after day. Let us see which jails are big enough to hold them, which laws are draconian enough to keep them in prison.

Meanwhile, Baldev Singh Sirsa’s hunger strike unto death at Sirsa, Haryana has entered the fourth day today. He is demanding that five youth farmers arrested under charges of sedition be released. He has said: either farmers will be released or I will be released (from life).
