“LABOUR MP Claudia Webbe has received horrific abuse on Twitter for standing in solidarity with Indian farmers, who are protesting against a new law that would see their incomes ravaged by big business.
Ms Webbe tweeted that the farmers were peacefully protesting against their government’s “attempts to railroad free-market capitalism into their farming communities.
In response to reports of state-sanctioned violence against the farmers, she wrote: “Our government should immediately cease sale of weapons including water cannons, tear gas and baton charges, which could be used against farmers in India.
The right to peacefully protest is a human right.
Ms Webbe faced a stream of racism and misogyny in response to her tweets”. Morning Star
Where is the solidarity and public support for Claudia from the Labour leadership – to quote a hand written placard held aloft by a white woman on a London Black Lives Matter demo, “White silence is violence”.
