For more than two hours, activists operated an information booth and a stand for people to write solidarity letters to the Palestinian prisoners, including a number of passers-by. More than 100 cards were written to be sent to various prisoners.

Hundreds of flyers and leaflets were distributed about the Palestinian prisoners, against administrative detention, in support of Georges Abdallah and for the BDS campaign.
