“Khalistan is the only solution to the plight of Punjab farmers,” said SFJ general counsel Gurpatwant Singh Pannun, “We have called for the shutdown of Indian embassies on UN Human Rights Day.”
He said the dress was reassured by the stance of the Canadian Prime Minister (Justin) Trudeau, UK MPs and the UN Secretary-General on supporting peasant protests.
While 13 protesters were arrested in London for violating the Kovid rules at Sunday’s rally, Birmingham-based Pamma and 15-20 supporters mingled freely with people who had descended on the streets in response to Sikh organizations’ union call. Although not an SFJ member, the Federation made clear on Monday that “everyone concerned with the situation of the farmers is free to participate in peaceful protests.”

“A large number of protesters – 3,500 to 4,000 people – exceeded the social exclusion criteria during the epidemic, ahead of the High Commission. It was soon clear that the meeting was led by anti-India separatists.
Immigrant protests were also held in Canada, the US, Australia and New Zealand, but did not include any separatist Sikh outfit.
Kuldeep Singh Chaheru, one of the three co-ordinators of the London protest, said: “The FSO officially organized a protest outside the Indian High Commission on Sunday in support of protesting farmers in Delhi, with over 30 years of experience in organizing peaceful protests in London. Thousands of people attended and were mainly from the Sikh community, but included non-Sikhs. One or two people came with the Khalistan banners and 15-20 people from the Sikhs for Justice with their 2020 referendum flags. ”
