'Kiss of Love' protest which happened on November 2, 2014 at Kochi's Marine Drive is back again. After a gap of three years, Kochi’s iconic Marine Drive on Thursday witnessed the protests against moral policing of Shiv Sena workers.
Hundreds of protestors gathered at Marine Drive on thursday 4 pm, responding to a call made by Facebook group Kiss of Love (KOL). The protestors raised slogans against moral policing of Shiv Sena and several pairs locked their lips. The campaign involves volunteers coming to the Marine drive, and hugging and kissing each other.
It all started on Wednesday when Shiv Sena group conducted a rally to Marine Drive, which turned violent as the members began to man handle the couples at Marine Drive and insulted them, which invoked Kiss of Love group to raise their voice again.
