Teen climate campaigner Greta Thunberg, who has been nominated for this year's Nobel Peace Prize, has shared a toolkit to help people show support for the farmers' protest on Delhi's outskirts. This comes amid a pushback from the centre after Ms Thunberg, 18, international pop icon Rihanna and lawmakers from the United States and the United Kingdom backed the farmers' agitation on social media.


New Delhi, 04 February 2021

Yesterday, the government warned against the "temptation of sensationalist social media hashtags and comments" and said the protests were by "a very small section of farmers" in parts of India. Hours after the Swedish climate activist posted her first tweet on the agitation that began late November against three controversial laws , Ms Thunberg yet again threw her weight behind the protest last night. She posted a toolkit - that had information on showing support to farmers on Republic Day, which was last week. Later, the post - which was outdated -  was deleted and an updated post was shared.
