@entryreqrd The new Farm Laws in India are fundamentally about two things : 1. Who really is the "farmer", the rich middleman or the guy who is struggling on a small plot ? 2. Should govt be involved in farm pricing ? Currently the farming sector in India is simply a copy of the Brit era systems. The govt buys through middlemen, and the petty farmer has no voice in anything - quantity, price, choice of changing buyer. The laws seek to break the stranglehold that middlemen have over the system. Allow the farmer to negotiate deals with any buyer in advance. The protestors ( who have mostly been infiltrated with opposition politics, communists, Trudea's terrorists, and Soros-sponsored anarchists ) have the following arguments : 1. They are the farmers. (this is untrue, they numerically represent less than 2% of all farmers in India, financially may be 8%) 2. The entry of corporate buyers into the system spells doom, esp during overproduction. Almost all economists and farm experts have been clamouring for such a change in laws for over 30 years. Everyone agrees that the middlemen are a poison, they have always prevented any change in status quo, any entry of new players and investors in the farm sector. In short this is all about "change" vs "status quo". The latest status is that about 10000 farmers are squatting outside the national capital. And Greta Thunberg and Rihanna and Justin Trudeau and some British MPs are twitting about "injustice". A fact that has raised a lot of laughter in India and about 500 million middle fingers :-).
