Farmer Protests – Deep Singh

 

Some of the world’s largest protests are taking place in support of farmers in India.  Whether in Delhi, San Francisco or Paris people have gone to the streets to show solidarity with the small farmers in India who are losing essential government support. To generate global awareness of the farmers’ fate,  Sikhs in California have brought tractors, trucks, friends and their voices to public rallies that have filled the Bay Bridge and circled government buildings. The Executive Director of the Jakara Movement, Deep Singh shares the reasons and methods being used to enlist

the public to the cause.  Deep’s family is from Punjab and he was raised in the Central Valley of California. Educated at UCLA and Johns Hopkins University, Deep’s commitment and passion to social, racial, and class justice has helped shape his view of the world.  #Farmer Protests  will  find news and events from all over the world.  www.jakara.org
