The demonstration lacked permission, and just before 1 pm the police decided to disband the crowd.

It was at twelve o'clock that a large group of people gathered in the Main Square to show their support for Palestine with signs and shouts.

When the police were to try to disperse those who had gathered, they began to march in groups towards Sandgrundsudden to later gather again on Stora Torget.

- A report has been made of a violation of the Public Order Act, says Lars Hedelin, the police spokesman.

Public gatherings of this kind require permission and are now only allowed to gather a maximum of eight people during pandemic times.
