The ongoing protests of contentious agriculture laws to deregulate the farming sector gained some international momentum with Tweets from both Rihanna and climate activist Greta Thunberg.

Internet access remained blocked Monday in several districts of a state bordering India’s capital following violent weekend clashes between police and farmers protesting controversial agricultural reforms … The internet restrictions came after violent scenes last week as demonstrations continue against three agricultural laws passed in September.

Nine senior Indian journalists are facing criminal charges for reporting allegations that Delhi police fatally shot a farmer in the head during protests last week, despite the authorities claiming no shots were fired.

Security has been tightened at the Singhu, Tikri and Ghazipur borders around Delhi using concrete barricades, iron nails and barbed wires amid ongoing protests by farmers.
