Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg is facing a criminal probe in India for posting a document that tells people how to protest and other advice for the farmer’s protest.
She must have released the document but immediately realized her error and she deleted the post. But not before it caught the attention of Indian authorities.
They have now opened an investigation to see if she violated the law.
Some people say the post proves that she is being told what positions to take. But she is the one with a target on her back. Thunberg was once the leading voice for global warming.
But in the end, she used up her usefulness, so she has been cast aside by the elite just like they did with Stormy Daniels and David Hogg.
Now she is fighting to remain relevant. It is not going to be an easy task.

The farmers are clashing with police around New Delhi. They are protesting new laws that will severely limit their ability to earn a living. Over 10,000 tractors have participated in the riots. One man has died.
The government says he overturned his tractor but protesters claim he was shot. So, it is a major problem when someone releases a statement like Thunberg. It will come down. to what is best to do. Prosecute her or drop it because of her high profile.
For her part, Rihanna tweeted to her more than 101 million followers: “Why aren’t we talking about this?!” She linked to a CNN news report about India blocking internet services at the protest sites, a tactic of the government to thwart protests.
Senior government ministers, Indian celebrities and even the foreign ministry are now urging people to come together and denounce “outsiders” like Thunberg and Rihanna who try to “break the country.”
“It is unfortunate to see vested interest groups trying to enforce their agenda on these protests, and derail them,” India’s foreign ministry said Wednesday in a rare statement criticizing “foreign individuals” posting on social media. It did not name Rihanna and others who followed suit.
