Today Top Stories || Indian Farmers Against New Agricultural Laws | Protesters Of Donald Trump | The Tower Of Human Skulls Discovered
Protests by thousands of Indian farmers against new agricultural laws in India intensified on Sunday, with the aim of renewing the grain procurement and pricing process by allowing private companies direct access to a wider agricultural sector. According to a report by the British news agency Reuters, a large number of angry farmers are protesting near New Delhi, rejecting the assurance of Prime Minister Narendra Modi that these laws will double the income of farmers. It may be recalled that six rounds of talks between government officials and farmers’ union leaders have failed to address the challenge facing the Indian government. Kamal Preet Singh Panu, a leader of the Sanyukta Kisan Andolan (United Farmers Protest), one of the 30 groups opposing the new rules, said:
The government wants to discredit and crush our movement but we will continue our peaceful protest
The local administration has tightened security measures, deployed police and set up barricades to prevent large numbers of farmers from entering New Delhi. Opposition parties in India and some senior economists have expressed support for the protesters.
A number of people were injured in a series of knife attacks on Saturday night after a day-long protest by supporters of President Donald Trump in the US capital. Earlier in the day, a Republican leader in Texas proposed forming a union of pro-Donald Trump states to prevent Democrat President-elect Joe Biden from taking power. Biden received not only 306 electoral votes compared to the current US president’s 232, but more than 7 million popular votes were cast in his favor, but Donald Trump and Republicans refuse to acknowledge these results.
Archaeologists have unearthed new parts of the tower of human skulls in central Mexico City , dating to the 14th-century Aztec Empire. The team of experts discovered the eastern and front part of the tower which contained the skulls of 119 men, women and children. Hundreds of skulls have been discovered from the tower in recent years, according to Mexico’s National Institute of Anthropology and History. The tower was first discovered in 2017 and new parts were discovered in March. It is believed to be part of a list of skulls named Huey Tzompantli, which aroused fear within the Spanish army that conquered the city in 1521. This terrifying structure was erected on the Temple Mayor, a central temple in the then Aztec capital of Tenochtitlan, now Mexico City.
