As she stood in the rain with a microphone in her hand, Navjot Kaur said we are witnessing "a moment of history" in India.
She was addressing a crowd of over 200 members of Griffith's Sikh community, who braved wet conditions on Saturday night to attend a demonstration in support of Indian farmers.
Tens of thousands of farmers are currently protesting in New Delhi, over new agriculture laws they believe threaten their livelihoods.
According to the farmers, the controversial laws pave the way for the government to remove a decades-old policy, which guarantees a minimum price for crops like wheat and rice.
Members of Griffith's Indian community, armed with umbrellas and posters, came together at the Sikh temple to show their support and spread awareness of the issue in their homeland.
According to Bobby Singh, a committee member at the temple, the cause is one which is close to the heart for many Indians in the MIA.
"We are all engaged to the farmers," he said. "My dad is a farmer in India. The Sikh community across Griffith ... their background is farmers, their parents are farmers, or they are now farmers here in Griffith."
"Our roots are still there, that's why it's very important for us."
According to Mr Singh, this demonstration was to express solidarity for the protesting farmers, and to show them that people all around the world are supporting them.
During the demonstration, member of the Sikh community, Navjot Kaur addressed the crowd.
"We are witnessing a moment in history," she said. "Farmers are protesting their rights in the midst of a global pandemic."
"Despite their efforts being peaceful, they have been met with extreme violence from state authorities."
Ms Kaur called on local politicians who had attended the rally, which included Member for Murray Helen Dalton and Griffith Mayor John Dal Broi, to help raise the voice of protesting Indian farmers.
Mrs Dalton said she had only recently been made aware of the situation in India, but she was "absolutely appalled" with the way protesting farmers were being treated.
She promised to raise the issue within Parliament and on social media.
The mayor and other councillors also spoke, expressing their support for the farmers in India.
