As the farmers and workers’ protest in India--some of the biggest mobilizations in global history--enter their fourth month, what conversations are necessary for us in the diaspora to have? What questions and concerns have the protests and their lack of redressal by the Indian government revealed about the state of democratic politics and people power in India? Where can we find inspiration and hope in the ongoing actions and solidarities of workers and farmers, as well as other marginalized groups?
