CCS Webinar: What do the Indian Farm Laws Say and Why Are the Farmers Protesting Against Them?

Facilitated by:

Andries Motau & Danford Chibvongodze

Topic:

In November 2021, the protest of the Indian farmers against the three farm laws passed by the Government of India in June 2020 will complete one year. What are the so-called ‘Farm law’ about and why are Indian farmers opposed to them? D’Souza’s talk will analyse the three farm laws and analyse the far-reaching impact it will have on the agrarian sector in India and the ways in which the farmers’ protests are changing the political landscape in the country.
