Amazon Fire: DYFI ‘protests’ against Brazilian government in front of closed embassy, trolled on social media

DYFI holds protest over Amazon forest fires at Brazilian embassy on a Sunday when it was closed.

The Democratic Youth Federation of India (DYFI) had on Sunday held ‘protests’ near the Brazilian embassy in Delhi over the burning of the Amazonian rainforest. The DYFI is a leftist organisation considered as the youth wing of CPI(M).

DYFI’s All India President PA Mohammad Riyas had shared the images of   DYFI cadre ‘protesting’ in front of the Brazilian embassy in Delhi. The images showed a total of 12 DYFI members holding 3 paper placards and 3 communist flags.

However, the DYFI members apparently forgot that Sunday is a holiday and the Brazilian Embassy was closed.

The ‘protest’ invited some trolling on social media by users who questioned the relevance and purpose of communists protesting against something happening in the Brazilian rainforest while they were oblivious to environmental issues in Kerala.

Also, the communists showing concern over the Amazon forests is ironic in itself because they had organised several protests against the Madhav Gadgil committee report on Kerala where it was suggested that the damage to the Western Ghats forests might mean environmental disasters for Kerala. The CPI(M) had actively campaigned to stop the implementation of the Madhav Gadgil committee’s report suggesting strict measures to conserve the Western Ghats.

Earlier, DYFI was also trolled on social media for ‘protesting’ against the abrogation of Article 370 in Kashmir in front of the Malappuram post office.
