Kisaans In Need (MLSS)

Total money raised: £396,346

Why have we decided to fundraise? 

Hundreds of thousands of farmers across India are protesting against the introduction of three laws to reform agriculture which make it easier for corporations to buy from farmers and give these corporations a disproportionate amount of purchasing power. The laws will also result in the removal of minimum support prices paid to farmers, and they will also take farmers to bankruptcy and allow the corporations to seize their land. 

The protests are being led by agriculture union leaders from Punjab, as well as many other states including Haryana, Bihar, Rajasthan, Maharashtra and has earned support from the entire nation.

These laws were ratified in September with no prior consultation with farmers unions or within the government.  The farmers tried to communicate to revoke the laws to no avail, the protest march to Delhi was begun in late November. Currently, there is a stand-off as millions of farmers, farm labourers and their families occupy the border of Delhi, stating they will not leave until the government revokes the bills.

    This appeal will focus on supporting those who have been impacted by the protests,. To date, over 500 protesters have lost their lives. Below are some of the families we have supported.
