Roblox players take part in digital pro-Palestine rallies

Roblox players, unable to protest Israel’s occupation of Palestine in person, have taken to the game’s digital streets to make their voices heard.

A user-created experience on the platform called “(PALESTINE) Dataran tanjung mas“ (written in Malay) has provided young gamers with an online space where they can get actively involved. The description says: “This card is made for solidarity with Palestine.”

The experience appears to be user-created cikguzyd, a Malaysian gamer who has around 200,000 followers on TikTok. Videos posted on X and TikTok show large groups of players carrying Palestinian flags gathering during the game, led by Cikguzyd chanting in Arabic, in prayer and protest.

The experience has been visited more than 27,000 times since its launch on October 14th. When players enter the digital space, they can choose whether to wear the flag of Malaysia or Palestine. A large Palestinian flag hangs at the entrance and floats on a moat surrounding a community square. Large letters in the water mean: “We love Palestine.” Large banners in the square read “Solidarity untukmu Palestine” or “Solidarity for you Palestine” with the date October 21, 2023.
