Artist: Shaina.

On November 19, 2021, on the 358th day of the protests at the Delhi borders, the Prime Minister in a televised address to the nation announced withdrawal of the laws. Finally, The Farm Laws Repeal Bill, 2021 was passed in both houses of the Parliament on the first day of the winter session on November 29, 2021 and on December 1, the President signs-off the Repeal Bill. Farmers all over the country fought an unprecedented and a sustained fight resulting in a victory while facing extreme weather conditions and state hostility. Around 750 farmers sacrificed their lives during this movement. After several rounds of exchanges with the Union government on the implementation of some of the demands such as withdrawal of cases filed against the protesters in different states, formation of committee on MSP, etc. the protests were suspended and the dismantling of the protest camps around Delhi, toll-plazas in Haryana and Punjab, and other protest sites in different states completed on December 13, 2021.

This brought the first phase of one of the longest, united and peaceful mass movements in the recent history of India.
