“Even though I’m not there with you in the physical, we’ve been trying to make efforts to support your protest in the ground.

“I know it’s getting to a stage where things are heating up and tensions are high. In my prayers at night, I’m praying for peace and positivity. We are organizing many care packaged for the people on the ground.”
