In a tweet, she says, “This isn't just about agricultural policy. It's also about the persecution of a vocal religious minority. It's police violence, militant nationalism, and attacks on labour rights. It's global authoritarianism. Don't tell me to stay out of your affairs. These are all of our issues.”

In another tweet, she says, “Weird to see a photo of yourself burned by an extremist mob but imagine what they would do if we lived in India. I'll tell you—23 yo labor rights activist Nodeep Kaur was arrested, tortured & sexually assaulted in police custody. She's been detained without bail for over 20 days.”

In yet another post, she says, “Y’all literally have headlines that say “Brave Indian men burned pictures of women who support farmers” and think that’s normal.”
