Greta Thunberg has thrown her weight behind protesting Indian farmers one more time
KATHMANDU, FEBRUARY 4
Climate and Environmental activist Greta Thunberg has thrown her weight behind protesting Indian farmers one more time, following the FIR filed against her by the Delhi police on Thursday.
Thunberg, stating that no amount of hate or threats would change her stance, reiterated that her support to the protests remains unchanged.
"I still stand with farmers and support their peaceful protest. No amount of hate, threats or violations of human rights will ever change that," Thunberg tweeted on Thursday.
Earlier today, the Delhi Police had filed an FIR against the climate activist alleging her for sharing a toolkit on the protests through her Twitter handle. The post was deleted later.
Along with Thunberg, US pop star Rihanna, Meena Harris -- activist and niece of US vice-president Kamala Harris -- had mentioned the ongoing farmers protests in Twitter on Wednesday.
The Indian government in response had issued a statement condemning the 'foreign interests' in India's domestic matters. Later, many Indian celebrities had echoed the Indian foreign ministry's sentiments on their social media timelines.
