Licypriya Kangujam, the 9-year-old climate activist from Manipur, has come out in support of farmers protesting against the farm law on the Haryana-Delhi borders for the last 18 days.
Licypriya Kangujam told the farmers that climate activists across the world are with them. He reached the Singhu Border and has been continuously posting videos and pictures of her with farmers.
“Hope my voice will reach all over the world. No Farmers, No Food. No Justice, No rest” as she wrote on her Twitter.
Licypriya Kangujam met with the children who are spending their days in the cold freezing temperature with their parents and grandparents at the farmer’s protest site in the middle of the highway at Singhu Border.
She also urged the farmers to stop the stubble burning as it increases air pollution and has a hazardous effect on the environment. She said that the farmers are the biggest victims of climate change as frequent floods, drought and other extreme events like cyclones, typhoons, locusts, etc. are destroying their crops.
She also added that there are thousands of farmers who are dying every year. Our leaders must hear their voices. She wants climate justice for farmers and also should take out a permanent solution to solve the ongoing farmers’ crisis at the earliest.
Licypriya told in an interview that “Stubble burning is being practised for the many years and hundreds of thousands years ago. There was no air pollution before. It came only in the last 5-6 years ago. So, our leaders have to find out to solve the air pollution crisis permanently. We can’t blame only farmers”.
Licypriya Kangujam is the youngest environmental activist across the world and she is better known as India’s Greta Thunberg. She protested with the farmers against the inaction of the world’s leaders after signing the Paris Climate Agreement in 2015 which legally binds international treaty on climate change.
