The All India Kisan Sangharsh Coordination Committee (AIKSCC) farmers coalition has called for nationwide protests on Monday, November 4, to demand that the government excludes agriculture or withdraws from the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) free trade agreement. Hundreds of thousands of farmers are expected to gather at district and lower administrative offices around the country and burn the effigy of the RCEP document, according to local media outlets.
A heightened security presence and localized transportation disruptions are expected near all protest sites.
Individuals in India are advised to monitor developments, avoid all protests as a precaution, anticipate a heightened security presence and transportation disruptions, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
