The civic protesters included Assamese artists, writers, civil people and members of 30 organizations.

The ‘Satyagraphi’ raised ‘we don’t welcome CAA’, ‘CAA must be repealed’ etc. The protesters also claimed that they are ready to face ‘imprisonment’ but won’t bow down.

The Assam police detained all the ‘Satyagrahi’ and restricted entry of media personnel in that area.
