The youthful climate campaigner Greta Thunberg, who was nominated for this year’s Nobel Peace Prize, shared a toolkit that people can use to support the farmers’ protest on the outskirts of Delhi. This comes amid a setback from the center after Ms. Thunberg, 18, international pop icon Rihanna and lawmakers from the US and UK supported farmers’ agitation on social media.

Yesterday the government warned the « temptation of sensational social media hashtags and comments » and said the protests were from « a very small group of farmers » in parts of India.

Hours after the Swedish climate activist posted her first tweet about the agitation, which began in late November against three controversial laws, Ms. Thunberg again threw her weight behind the protest last night.

She released a toolkit containing information on how farmers were supported on Republic Day, which was last week . Later the outdated post was deleted and an updated post shared.

Here is an updated toolkit from local people in India if you want to help. (They removed their previous document because it was out of date.) # StandWithFarmers # FarmersProtesthttps: //t.co/ZGEcMwHUNL

She also proposed protests on February 13th and 14th near the nearest Indian embassy Your input even comes when the Center said on Wednesday, « Before we rush to comment on such matters, we urge you to establish the facts and gain a proper understanding of the issues at hand. The temptation of sensational social media hashtags and comments, especially when celebrities and others resort to them, is neither correct nor responsible. « 

In a tweet, Interior Minister Amit Shah emphasized: » No propaganda can deter India’s unity! No propaganda can Stop India from Reaching New Heights! Propaganda cannot determine India’s fate, only “progress.” India stands united and united to make progress ielen. « 

Aside from Mr Shah, many other celebrities – including sports personalities Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohla, Bollywood actors Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgn – tweeted statements saying, » Let’s stay united « .

Thousands have protested the three laws that they say are at the mercy of businesses on Delhi’s borders. Security at three protest epicentres was increased last week after protesters clashed with police during a massive tractor rally on Republic Day. The pictures show barricades, barbed wire fences, nails and trenches on streets, and demonstrators have compared the measures with security measures at international borders.
