New Delhi: American lawyer Meena Harris, the niece of Vice-President Kamala Harris, has shared a photo of a protest against her, for tweeting in support of the farmers’ agitation.
“I spoke out in support of human rights for Indian farmers, and look at the response,” Meena Harris tweeted on Thursday, sharing a photo by Reuters journalist Danish Siddiqui.
“I won’t be intimidated, and I won’t be silenced,” she added in a pinned tweet.
The 36-year-old, also an author, has been tweeting regularly since an international media report on the farmer protests and the government’s crackdown led to posts from pop star Rihanna, climate activist Greta Thunberg and many others on Tuesday.
“Why aren’t we talking about this?” – this post by Rihanna, who has over 100 million followers on Twitter, started a barrage of tweets that have taken the two-month-old agitation on highways outside Delhi to the global stage.
Rihanna, Meena Harris, Greta Thunberg and many others shared a CNN story on Internet being suspended near the protest sites and other moves by the government.
