Greta Thunberg supports Farmers Protest: Delhi Police to write to Google for the IP address to identify authors of the toolkit

New Delhi: A day after teen climate activist Greta Thunberg shared Google documents on how to support and protest against the farm laws globally.

An FIR was lodged against the toolkit, and now it has been said that the Delhi Police are going to write to Google to get the IP address or the location from where the doc was made and uploaded on social media platform. This is being done to identify the authors of the toolkit which was shared on the Google Doc, said Police sources.


Praveer Ranjan, Special Commissioner of Police (CP), Delhi Police, on Thursday evening said, “We haven’t named anybody in the FIR, it’s only against the creators of toolkit which is a matter of investigation & Delhi Police will be investigating that case.”

“Preliminary enquiry has revealed that the toolkit in question appears to have been created by a pro-Khalistani Organisation ‘Poetic Justice Foundation’,” the police officer said.

The FIR has been lodged under the Indian Penal Code’s Sections 124A (sedition), 153A (promoting enmity), and 120B (criminal conspiracy).


The document titled Global Farmers Strike – First Wave’ says, “On 26th January, a major day of globally coordinated actions, show your support at local physical locations, wherever you are. Either find protests happening in your city/state/country and participate in large (or small) numbers or organize one.”

“While we are focusing on the 26th, you are encouraged to continue organising gatherings as and when possible – for this is not going to end anytime soon,” the documents said.

 “India cuts internet around New Delhi as protesting farmers clash with police” Thunberg tweeted on Tuesday saying, “We stand in solidarity with the #FarmersProtest in India.”

She also shared “a toolkit for those who want to help”.

“Here’s a toolkit if you want to help,” tweeted Thunberg, which takes the user to a document containing details on ways to support the protest.

The document included various urgent actions, including creating a Twitter storm and holding protests outside Indian embassies and government officers to support farmers’ protest.

Meanwhile, India in a strong-worded reaction termed statements by foreign celebrities and personalities on the farmers’ protest as part of “vested interest groups”. Terming their support as “sensationalist social media hashtags the MEA called those comments “neither accurate nor responsible.”
