Jamie Margolin, who runs intersectional movement of youth activists fighting for climate change, replied to Mia Khalifa’s tweet saying, “I stand with the farmers in India. Without famers there is no food, please support the #farmersprotest! 

A retired IPS officer, Dr. N. C. Asthana, says “Law and order situations demand temporary barricading. Permanent concrete barricadings replete with spikes etc. become fortification. Fortifications mean the ruler is either AFRAID of the people or regards them as ENEMIES. In both situations, can we call it a democracy?”

Rep. Jim Costa, who represents CA’s 16th District wrote, “The unfolding events in India are troubling. As a member of the Foreign Affairs Committee, I am closely monitoring the situation. The right to peaceful protest must always be respected. #FarmersProtest”

Khalifa is former adult film personality. She has launched a petition against BangBros, the producer of her porn films, to take off all her porn videos from their websites.
