After the Kochi edition of the ‘kiss of love‘ early this month, next in the same line is ‘kiss in the street’ slated for December 7 in Kozhikode to publically register the protest against the alleged incidents of moral policing in Kerala.
The organisers have launched a Facebook page for kiss in the street to uphold the freedom of an individual. The ‘kiss of love’ held in Kochi on November 2 had a slap on the cheek of moral policing. We need decentralised repeat of the kiss of love. This is a cultural surge. Come let us kiss in the street, said the Facebook page.
Police had arrested several men and women in Kochi who tried to conduct the ‘kiss of love’ protest in the wake of BJP attack against a hotel in Kozhikode. Thousands had thronged Kochi to witness the event, but had to return crestfallen as the police did not allow the participants of the kiss festival to go into the venue.
