International report puts farmers’ movement under global scanner


Civicus, a worldwide civil society coalition, has issued its annual "State of civil society report 2021," which details the people's mobilizations that swept Asia in the wake of the Covid outbreak. Protests in Thailand, Myanmar, and India are covered in the article, with the farmers' movement being covered under the heading "Farmers make their views known." People in Asian countries have taken to the streets, demanding democratic and economic rights and opposing authoritarian governments that restrict civic liberties, according to the research. It also goes into detail about the farmers' battle, claiming that collective action and a large-scale coordinated strike compelled the central government to agree on agricultural reform legislation. The research also examines how the protests at Delhi's borders were received in the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, Singapore, and other nations. Massive farmers' demonstrations came to occupy an essential place for people to speak out against presidential overreach and find common cause to join together and be heard. Farmers' complaints were rejected by the government at first, but when a huge number of people united with the demonstrators, the administration was compelled to negotiate.
