Indian farm protests remain strong after 70 days

Farmers in Punjab, India, have left their fields, families and crops to march to the capital New Delhi to voice concerns about new agricultural laws passed by the Indian government.
They argue that the three laws will deregulate crop pricing, reduce income and allow private players in the sector, leaving them vulnerable to large corporations.

Quote of the Day

“If no one had an army, armies would not be needed. But the same can be said of most lobbyists, PR specialists, telemarketers, and corporate lawyers. Also, like literal goons, they have a largely negative impact on society. I think almost anyone would concur that, were all telemarketers to disappear, the world would be a better place.”
― David Graeber, Bullshit Jobs: A Theory
