Surrey Today Podcast: Standing With Indian Farmers – Support from Palestinian and American Farmers

Published

on

In this podcast episode, Vin and I have a dialog with Dr. Harjit Singh Grewal and Amudi.

Dr. Harjit Singh Grewal is a professor at the University of Calgary, where he focuses on the Punjab region and Sikh religion. Amudi is a farmer in Washington State, where he owns and operates the Olive Branch Ranch. Amudi also comes from a family of Palestinian farmers, who have spent generations harvesting olives and raising livestock.

In this dialog, we discuss the plight of Indian farmers, and analyze the plight of Palestinian and North American farmers, in an effort to identify key similarities across these different groups. We ultimately try to analyze what has happened to all of these groups of farmers, to understand and predict what the future of Indian farmers might look like, if India’s 3 newly passed agricultural bills are not re-written.

Please share this word with your friends, and any potential allies who can help support the Kisaan.
