Well, I would like to share a piece of international news that trended on Twitter and Facebook a few days back. This news is linked with Rihanna and the farmers. Millions of farmers are protesting against new agricultural reforms introduced by the government.
I was at home in my room at that time. It was around 10 pm, and I was surfing the internet on my phone just before going to sleep. Suddenly, I received a phone call from my friend, and he asked me to check Twitter. The moment I opened my account, I was shocked to see the tweet by Rihanna in which she raised a question with a link to an article written by CNN news.
She wrote in her tweet, “why aren’t we talking about this?! #FarmersProtest“. She pointed a finger towards the authoritarian behavior of the government. Since the authorities had terminated the internet around the protesting sites.
I was on cloud nine because of this news, and I strongly support farmers. This tweet was so important because most of the national media is pro-government. I stand firmly with farmers against this law. Due to the tweet of Rihanna, all the supporters of farmers felt motivated. I do not know why the government is forcing something that people do not want.
