A day after Shiv Sena activists attacked young couples at Marine Drive in Kochi Wednesday and chased them away in an act of moral policing, a group of SFI and DYFI activists are staging a sit-in protest there.
The sit-in protest by the activists began at 10 am with supporters from all parts of the district. KSU activists also staged protest against the act of moral policing by Shiv Sena.

The events unfurled as a handful of Shiv Sena men, some of them wielding canes, took out a march through Marine Drive. The police were in toe but they hardly bothered to strip the men of the canes or stop an apparently menacing and intimidating march.
Meanwhile, the Facebook page of 'Kiss of Love' also announced that a protest would be held Thursday, at 4 pm at Marine Drive.
