Eastern Times , New Delhi : On the nationwide call of the Samyukta Kisan Morcha (SKM), International Women’s Day was celebrated as “Women Farmers Day” on Monday. Thousands of women farmers reached Delhi borders and expressed their anger against the Modi government and demonstrated women’s power.
From Sunday itself, women from many parts of the country started coming towards Delhi.
Women from all types of vehicles such as tractors, cars, jeeps, tempo, buses and trains, waving mazdoor-Kisan flags, reached the dharnas around Delhi to protest against the three agricultural laws of Modi Govt.
Monday all the stages of the farmers movement were managed by women. All the arrangements related to the morcha were done by women.
Along with this, all the speakers on the stage were also women. Women of all ages and professions themselves joined the morcha.
A large number of women farmers on the Tikri border demonstrated their strength. Speaking on the main stage, the women farmers declared three farming laws as death warrants.
During this, women farmers termed the Modi government as anti-women and said that the demands of women farmers have been completely ignored. There was a big conference of women at Pakora Chowk in which women discussed all the issues related to women farmers.
Along with women farmers, activists of many progressive women’s organizations from Delhi participated in this event.
On the Singhu border, the women farmers challenged the Modi government and said that we are getting stronger day by day.
The government feels that the movement will weaken over time, but the spirits of the farmers are getting stronger by the day. When needed, the farmers will continue to show their strength, but the farmers will not go back until the three farm laws are withdrawn.
During this time, cultural programs were also presented by the women of Haryana. Similarly, women from Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh and Delhi reached the Ghazipur border in large numbers and put light on the issues of women protesters.
