Protesters Gather Across India to Challenge Farm Laws

Continued protests against recently enacted farm laws took place across India on Wednesday, February 10, joined by political leaders supporting farmers.

Footage from Uttar Pradesh’s Saharanpur district shows demonstrators gathered on Wednesday. The Indian National Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra spoke in support of farmers at the event.

Farmers have been protesting since last year against three farm laws. The laws, enacted in September, allow farmers to sell products to private businesses directly, rather than to the government at assured wholesale prices, the BBC reported. Credit: Rohan Gupta via Storyful
