Our research in progress investigates digital disinformation and its impact on farmers’ movement in India. False and defaming information can lead to unintended outcomes and has potential to cause public harm, especially through social media propagation. We conducted a preliminary analysis of articles to understand the prevalence of disinformation in the farmers’ movement. Future work will include social media analysis on collected Twitter data to validate the emerged categories of disinformation in the social movement.
