The Farmers’ Parade called by farmers is the most fitting way to mark Republic Day 2021. Farmers and farm workers constitute the large part of “we the people of India” who constitute the Indian Republic.
We urge the people of Delhi and India to do all they can to support and participate in the Farmers’ Parade – both in the national capital and all over the country. We hope that the Government of India will refrain from unleashing repression against the farmers, whose struggle to protect India’s farming communities, food security, and food rations from Company Raj are the best tribute to the values of India’s freedom struggle.
