Over the last nine months, tens of thousands have taken to the streets of India to call for a repeal of the government’s farm acts, which favour private profit and threaten farmers’ livelihoods.
This Saturday, 13th March, UK South Asian-led collective Daytimers are hosting a 24-hour charity livestream in solidarity with those protesting. Organised in collaboration with LA-based No Nazar, the stream seeks to raise awareness of the ongoing protests, which have failed to gain adequate attention in western mainstream media.
DJs of South Asian descent will be performing throughout the day, including Jyoty, Nabihah Iqbal, anu and Yung Singh. Members of the Daytimers crew are also set to play. The stream will start at 10am, with a mixture of live and pre-recorded sets from across the UK, India and America. Access is on a pay-as-you-feel basis, will all proceeds going towards Khalsa Aid International, a non-profit organisation that has been supporting the Indian farmers on the ground.
