Kisan Mukti March: Farmers to Flood Streets of Delhi on 29th & 30th November
November 29, 2018
On November 29 and 30, more than hundred thousand farmers from across India will converge in the capital city of New Delhi. They will march to parliament, highlighting the agrarian crisis which has lasted in India for decades, and the role of the far-right Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led government in intensifying this crisis. Marching along with them in solidarity will be organizations of students, industrial workers, retired soldiers and the oppressed castes. The demand of all these sections is for a special session of parliament to discuss the agrarian crisis, and the National Commission on Farmers’ 2006 report.
