India’s Farmers Intensify Protests Against Pro-Corporate Laws | News | teleSUR English

After 19 days of protests on a row,  India’s farmers on Monday intensified their mobilizations with new roadblocks and hunger strikes to show their rejection of three laws that place the agricultural sector in the hands of big corporations.

“These laws not only negatively affect farmers. They will also jeopardize the nation’s food security,” the All India Kisan Sabha (AIKS) said and stressed that “repeal of these laws is the only way to suspend the protests.”

The largest protests were repeated this Monday in several of the entrances to New Delhi, where the peasants have been camped for 19 days.
