    At least one protester died as farmers protesting against new agriculture laws in India stormed the historic Red Fort in Delhi on January 26, 2021. Thousands took to the streets in the capitol, some on tractors, over laws that they say help large, private buyers at the expense of producers. Many have camped on the outskirts of the city since November. Many demonstrators were injured as clashes turned violent and police used tear gas to disperse the crowd.
