Give your views on the farming protests
I have been contacted by my local MP https://members.parliament.uk/member/4617/contact who is looking for viewpoints on the farming protests in India so that he can write appropriately on behalf of his Indian constituents, to the UK foreign minister. Please give your views on this thread so that I can share them.

Since we did not reach consensus moving the discussion to Associates sub group https://codema.in/d/eaWLZSjO/statement-on-farmersprotest
We like to echo the words of P Sainath  on #FarmersProtest
"Cutting off water and electricity to lakhs of human beings, exposing them to serious health hazards by doing so, having police and paramilitary barricade them into cut-off zones while imposing dangerously insanitary conditions on them, making it almost impossible for journalists to reach the protesting farmers, punishing a group that has already seen perhaps 200 of its own die, many from hypothermia, in the past two months. Anywhere in the world this would be seen as barbaric and an assault on human rights and dignity.
But we, our government and ruling elite are preoccupied with far more pressing concerns. Such as how to smash the conspiracy of dreaded global terrorists Rihanna and Greta Thunberg aimed at defaming and humiliating the greatest nation on earth.
As fiction, that would be insanely funny. As reality, it’s merely insane."

I am appalled by the amount of Propaganda based on hear say amplified in the statement above and really disappointed with this childish statement whuch is full of lies. We have seen such cheap tactics unfolding and failed during the CAA protest.
