    Police had detained many of the citizens

    A candle march was organised

    Pamphlets were distributed explaining the Palestinian side of the story

Hundreds of citizens gathered outside the metro station in MG Road to form a human chain for “educational purposes” in a demonstration exhibiting solidarity with Palestine. The police had detained many of the citizens who had gathered for apparently not having sought prior permission. “It is unfortunate that in cities like Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru, protesters standing up for Palestine are being detained by police. India has always stood with Palestine. In Bengaluru, we tried to bring together people who continue to stand in solidarity with Palestinians no matter what people in power are trying to do. The genocide there has reached unprecedented levels.” General Secretary of the PUCL, Aishwarya Ravikumar, said in an interaction with The Indian Express

A candle march was organised by those who had gathered and pamphlets were distributed explaining the Palestinian side of the story. “I am here against all forms of oppression. The Palestinians are facing oppression by Israel, resulting in the ethnic cleansing of Palestine. I oppose the Israeli occupation. They use queer rights for pinkwashing. It erodes our fundamental rights and is used to deflect criticism. Israel accepts cis-gender queer individuals who support their occupation but reacts harshly if we oppose it.” Dhruv Joshi, a member of the queer group, said in an interaction with The New Indian Express
