HeadlineFeb 13, 2024

In India, police fired tear gas at thousands of farmers marching toward New Delhi protesting for better working protections and to be paid a higher value for their crops. Police sealed several entry points into New Delhi with barricades of barbed wire, cement blocks and spikes. Some of the protesters were arrested. This is a leader with the Punjab farmers’ union.

Sarvan Singh Pandher: “See how peacefully the farmers are marching, yet the police are dropping tear gas shells from drones hovering in the sky!”
