Canadian YouTuber Lilly Singh's TikTok Video supporting Farmers' Protest Goes Viral
Lilly Singh, whose parents emigrated from Punjab, recently took to TikTok to inform her fans and supporters about the "historic farmer protest" taking place in India.
Canadian YouTube star Lilly Singh has also used her Twitter account to voice her support for the farmers protesting against the controversial agriculture laws back in India.
In the video, she says, "Stop! Did you know right now in India there is the largest human protest in the history taking place. I've been talking a lot about farmers' protest happening in India."
"Long story short, farmers are protesting new agriculture bills that affect their livelihood and they have been peacefully protesting but have not met with no so peaceful responses," before adding, "What you can do is donate and spread awareness because the media is not covering this."
Taking to Twitter, Singh wrote: "The right to peacefully protest and speak up and not be met with violence is fundamental. We can never, ever lose that. If we lose that anywhere, we all lose a huge part of ourselves as humans everywhere."
Earlier, Singh spoke of farmer suicides in Punjab and that the new changes will only pull them down and hinder in their ability to provide and survive.

Farmers are protesting against the Farmers' Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020, the Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, 2020, and the Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020.
The nationwide bandh called by farmer unions in protest of the Centre's three farm laws received widespread support Tuesday as protesters from opposition parties and several other organisations held symbolic 'chakka jam' demonstrations across the country. Farmer leaders said their strike will remain peaceful and that no shops and establishments will be forcibly closed on account of the Bandh.
