These students are part of the Fraternity Movement. The students put up 'Free Palestine' and 'Caution Contents May Fund Genocide' posters on the Starbucks store's glass door, according to the FIR. Starbucks is one of the several franchises that has come under fire for its perceived pro-Israel stance amid the deadly war in Gaza.
