Do protests work

A protest is defined as an expression of an objection to something that is happening.

There are examples of protests that are very famous like Black Lives Matter. Now I am going to tell you about a protest that is happening in India, the kisaan protest (farmers protest).The kisaan protest has been going on for 4 to 5 months, the issue the kisaan protest is raising is that smaller farmers might lose there land if recent farming rules are not taken away by the Indian government. The farmers did know about the laws that were going to be passed and the Farmers do not agree with them.

If the farmers didn't protest. 3.1 billon people would be affected by this rule in India (number of farmers).The protest started in Punjab then to Delhi.When kisaan went to Delhi the protest got serious and people all over the world helped kisaan by raising awareness of the protest on social media, for example Rihanna. Some people think if this might go on for about a year turn into civil war.

The farmers protest has been very peacefull but has been some fighting and some injured.More than 2,000 people have got injured and two protesters people have died.

Overall the farmers protest is the largest protest in the world.the Indian government has suspended the rule for 18 months but the farmers are still protesting to ban the rule forever.
