Tens of thousands of farmers have congregated in India's capital to protest the new agricultural laws that they say could destroy their livelihoods. Passed in September, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi says the laws will give farmers more autonomy to set their own prices and sell directly to private businesses, such as supermarket chains. However, India’s farmers are infuriated and say the move will leave them worse off by making it easier for corporates to exploit agricultural workers.
