Our Executive Director Shalmali Guttal speaks about the increasing accounts of criminalisation of dissent and attack on peasants that is occurring in many parts of the world, including India and reasserts the importance of global peasant solidarity in the form of International Day of Peasant’s Struggle.

Speaking to us during the International Conference of Agrarian reform in Maraba, Brazil, Shalmali also expressed her honour and pride in being with the peasants from around the world, in their moments of resistance.
