All proceeds will go towards Khalsa Aid - an international NGO with the aim to provide humanitarian aid in disaster areas and civil conflict zones around the world. The organisation is based upon the Sikh principle of "Recognise the whole human race as one".
Khalsa Aid is currently providing resources and food for the thousands of farmers who continue to march their way to Delhi to show how 3 new laws will affect them financially and independently.
From water cannon blasts and tear gas, our local farmers back in India have faced multiple obstacles along the way to prevent them from their freedom of expressing their concern around how the new laws will affect them financially.
By donating any contribution you can provide for this cause, you will be providing the tens of thousands of people in India the freedom to continue to protest their right to revoke the 3 new laws put in place. These laws will jeopardize their freedom and right to continue pricing and selling the goods they make at a valuable price that is fit for them.
These new rules will put several thousands farmers at risk of losing their jobs and a considerable amount of their financial freedom if they enter a free market against the high bargaining power corporations will have over them.
Canada's Prime Minister Trudeau said “I would be remiss if I didn’t start also by recognizing the news coming out of India about the protest by farmers. The situation is concerning, and we’re all very worried about families and friends. I know that’s a reality for many of you."
Your financial support and awareness will mean the world to me because I personally put myself in the shoes of all farmers right now. I recognize that a generation ago, my parents were right in their shoes. I grew up with generations of farmers in my family. Had it not been for their dedication, love for natural grown crops, endless hours of hard work on the fields, we would have never dreamed of living a blessed life here in Canada. This is where life, sacrifice and work began for a lot of us proud Punjabi's.
I put myself in their shoes and can't help but think that if this was happening even 25 years ago, I would not be blessed with the chance of being where I am today due to the sacrifice and hours put into the work that needed to be done on our farms in Punjab. My Uncle currently is one of the farmers at risk and in fear of losing his entire life's hard work to a large corporation or the government seizing his farm property to call it their very own if these laws get put in place.
With the lack of education and technology farmers have, they will be uncapable of keeping up with the demands of what the new free market will come with. With no sense of reliance on the government building this infrastructure, without your support today, our most promising occupation and roots that lay in the hands of our farmers in India will be doomed for generations to come.
One extra dollar towards this cause, is one extra mouth fed, that is one more person willing to take a stand and proudly stand in the protest in the hopes of making an impact on the Government of India changing their minds.
Together, we can make a difference.
