Sign the solidarity statement in support of the ongoing farmer strike in India today!

Family Farm Defenders would like to invite other members of WNPJ to sign onto this solidarity statement in support of the ongoing farmer strike in India.

This solidarity statement is being circulated by the National Family Farm Coalition, Rural Coalition, Northwest Atlantic Marine Alliance, Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy and the Grassroots Global Justice Alliance, as well as diasporic Indians who continue to work with farmers groups in India. The Indian farmers are protesting agricultural marketing reforms that are about liberalizing the Indian agriculture and food sectors, not only at the cost of farmers, but also the food security of India’s poor. A comprehensive article explaining what the massive farmers’ protests are about can be found here.

The deadline to sign onto this solidarity statement is Tues. Feb. 16th, via this Google form

Thanks – John
