The protests were organised in London, New York, Toronto and different EU countries by the US and Canada-based group Sikhs for Justice, and drew people from all over the world, many of them chanting “Khalistan”.

They chanted slogans and hold banners reading “Free Punjab, End Indian occupation”, “Punjab Referendum 2020 for Khalistan” and “We will re-establish Punjab as an independent country”.
The pro-Khalistani supporters shouted slogans such as ‘Khalistan Zindabad’ and waved anti-India placards.
Sikhs for Justice (SFJ) said their protests are intended to raise awareness for a non-binding referendum in 2020, calling for the Sikh-majority state of Punjab to be granted independence.
