September 20, 2020. The spark of one of the world’s largest protests. As the world witnesses the march of justice for over 250 million farmers who have traveled to New Delhi. Shouting, holding banners, blocking highways near the city, and protecting themselves from the police force. 200+ activists detained and 248 farmers dead (11).
On September 20, 2020, the Indian government implemented new regulations that heavily impacted the agriculture industry and the livelihood of farmers. In anger and thirst for justice, farmers across all states of India continue their protest 7 months later, waiting for the government to hear their voices.
