Sustainable agriculture, Rihanna supports the farmers of India

Rihanna in favor of the peasants of India, has created a word of mouth thanks to Twitter focusing attention on the ongoing demonstrations.

A testimonial of excellence for the peasants of India who found support in the singer Rihanna, who with his recent tweet attracted the attention of his millions of followers.

The artist shared a CNN report focusing on the condition of the agricultural workers in India and the related events that arose spontaneously in New Delhi. Farmers and peasants have been demonstrating for days against government decisions that have imposed new laws for the agricultural sector.

A series of regulations that would make local farmers and workers even poorer, in favor of multinationals investing in India. The tweet wants to solicit a debate on the subject and for now has attracted the attention of many others celebrities and influencers among which Greta Thunberg, which immediately declared its solidarity with the ongoing protest.

Rihanna, a tweet that did not go unnoticed

The new laws passed in September displeased local farmers who poured into the streets en masse, finding the police obstructing their path. Furthermore, the Indian state would have effectively silenced the Internet network of New Delhi, preventing the disclosure of the facts. But the news still went around the world, favoring compact protests among local workers. Rihanna’s tweet sparked a reaction from the Indian government which immediately responded how, with the new laws, farmers can decide for themselves price to be proposed to companies.

But according to agricultural workers this will allow the multinationals themselves to define prices by impoverishing the sector, without real sustainable development in an environment that employs half the Indian population. The government did not like the media attention unleashed by the singer and not even the word of mouth that derived from it, these are the words of Anurag Srivastava, spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs:

Before rushing to comment on these issues, we urge that the facts be established and that a proper understanding of current issues be undertaken. Sensational social media hashtags and comments are tempting, especially when used by celebrities and others, but they can be inaccurate and responsible.
