Fallen Farmers Fund

The Fallen Farmers Fund is providing financial compensation to every family that has lost a loved one in the ongoing farmers movement in India.  

Thousands of farmers from across the nation stand united on all borders of the capital, New Delhi. It’s one of the harshest winters on record coupled with sporadic rain spells. Farmers are camping out in trolleys, tents and under tractors. Farmers are also facing aggressive security action including tear gas attacks and lathi-charges. 

 Over 100 people have lost their lives during peaceful national calls for economic justice in response to three contentious laws passed by the Indian Parliament in September 2020. 

UNITED SIKHS is offering financial compensation of 50,000 Rupees to families facing the loss of a loved one. As members of the global community, please contribute to this fund to help these families in their time of tragedy. We aim to distribute up to 1 crore rupees as part of the fallen farmers fund contingent on the funds raised, the attempt is to distribute it to as many needy fallen farmer families participating in the protests.

Background:

This movement is one of the largest global protests. Farmers are protesting recent laws enacted by the Central Government fearing:

1. Dismantling of the Minimum Support Price (MSP) system which will allow big corporate houses to dictate terms and
farmers will end up getting less for their crops.

2. Disbanding of the Mandi system, they will not get an assured price for their crops.

3. Undoing of “Arthiyas” – commission agents who also pitch in with loans for them – will be out of business.

The United Nations (UN) has said that the Indian farmers have the right to peaceful protests. “People have a right to demonstrate peacefully, and authorities need to let them do so,” UN Secretary-General’s Spokesperson Stephane Dujarric said. 

 Thank you for your contribution to and support of this fund in response to one of the biggest humanitarian crises in India.
