Demonstrators gathered outside the Consulate of India in San Francisco’s Richmond District Tuesday to protest in sympathy with farmers in India who have been fighting a series of agricultural bills that they say are leaving them economically devastated.
Demonstrators rallied around the cry of “No Farm! No Food!”
Timed to coincide with protests in the India capital of New Delhi on national holiday Republic Day, the SF rally was organized by Sikhs for Justice. Protests also took place in New York City and Washington, D.C., which are also home to large Sikh communities, as well as in Canada and Europe.
