Take Back Farm Laws
We call on the Indian Government:
Repeal the 3 new farm laws. Ensure fair price for farmers' produce. End violence against farmers.
We at APMDD stand in solidarity with the call of farmers and our member-movements in India who have been mobilizing for many days in protest against the central government's three new farm laws.
Farmers' movements across India are protesting against:
- The Farmers’ Produce Trade & Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020;
- The Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, 2020; and
- The Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020.
They are saying that the new laws are “anti-farmer”, and would pave the way for dismantling of the minimum support price system, leaving them at the “mercy” of big corporations.
