A protester stands in protest to denounce the U.S. policies on North Korea near the U.S. Embassy in Seoul, South Korea, Tuesday, Sept. 28, 2021. North Korea on Monday accused the United States of keeping up its "hostile policy" and demanded the Biden administration permanently end joint military exercises with South Korea even as it continued its recent streak of weapons tests apparently aimed at pressuring Washington and Seoul over slow nuclear diplomacy. The sign reads "Suspension of war practice against North Korea and withdrawal of the U.S. troops." (AP Photo/Ahn Young-joon)

Thousands of Indian farmers are blocking major roads and railway tracks outside the capital of New Delhi, marking one year of protests against agricultural laws that they say will shatter their livelihoods. The mood on Monday was charged with determination to keep the anti-government demonstrations going — some even brought mattresses with them, camping out as the day went on. The farmers called for a nation-wide strike to mark one year since the legislation was passed. The drawn-out demonstrations have posed one of the biggest political challenges to Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The farmers say the new legislation will devastate their earnings by ending guaranteed pricing and force them to sell their crops to corporations at cheaper prices.
