Alt News had already verified this video earlier in November when it was being circulated as scenes from a rally held in protest of the wave of violence in Tripura.

On January 3, 2020, Mannarkkad Live uploaded a video report featuring scenes from the viral clip. According to the report, the visuals showed protestors in Mannarkkad participating in an anti-CAA demonstration.

The similarities between the viral video and the footage in the media report are shown below.

Another media outlet also covered the rally in a video report.

In sum, a video of an old anti-CAA rally in Kerala is being shared as recent with various different false claims.
