Indian farmers plan to block highways across country

Tens of thousands of protesting Indian farmers plan to blockade highways across the country for three hours Saturday. Authorities deployed thousands of security forces outside India’s capital city of Delhi. Farmers are demanding the government rolls back the laws it says are necessary to modernize Indian agriculture. They say the laws will leave them poorer and at the mercy of corporations.

ELI5: you like drawing with crayons, it works, you're happy with it, and most importantly, it's what your mom can afford. Then the teacher comes in the next day and asks everyone to bring high grade professional markers from now on. You can borrow from an upperclassman and owe them quite a lot or stop drawing all together. Just in this case, not drawing means starving and dying. Correct me if i misunderstood

Good, there was a huge political push to get toilets to these people - and i say that because if they can't afford toilets, they can't afford modern farming methods. Pushing it on them means they would have to rent or owe big corporations, fucking them over big time, just like the american farm (especially poultry) industry. I hope they succeed... but i doubt it.
