Indian farmer protesters begin hunger strike against police violence

India’s months-long protests against the government’s agricultural reforms have entered a new phase as the farmers began a one-day hunger strike to spread the values of truth and peace, after a week of clashes with authorities that left one dead and hundreds injured.

Farm leaders said on Saturday that the hunger strike would show Indians that the protesters were overwhelmingly peaceful.

“The farmers’ movement was peaceful and will be peaceful,” said Darshan Pal, a leader of the Samyukt Kisan Morcha group of farm unions organizing the protests.

The government on Saturday blocked mobile internet services in several areas surrounding the capital New Delhi.
