Was having dinner with fellow friends from interstate universities at Old Town Kopitiam Mamak. Suddenly a large crowd appeared.
Turned out that the cause was supply of ration packs for Israeli soldiers by Max Brenner. Protesters refused to move from QV Square and turned violent.
Full chronology of the protest in photos coming later.

I learnt that it was the police who cracked down on the peaceful protest. The post with more photos and videos here
