Thousands of Students Stage Anti-Trump Protests in DC, NYC

High school students in several states including California, Colorado, and OR walked out of class chanting and carrying signs as protests against the election of Donald Trump entered their sixth day on Monday. In an interview on CBS' "60 Minutes" that aired Sunday night, Trump told his supporters to stop the harassment, and that he would, "bring this country together".

East Los Angeles high school students protest against the election of President-elect Donald Trump downtown Los Angeles, Nov. 14, 2016.

They all gathered at Cal Anderson Park and then headed to Westlake Plaza, and that's when others joined in on the protests from more organized groups that often show up at protests in Seattle. Say it clear. Immigration, welcome here'.

They carried signs saying, "Not my president" and "Love Wins", according to the Associated Press.

They called on California cities to remain sanctuaries for people in the country illegally, the San Francisco Chronicle reported, while San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee vowed to maintain that status.

After leaving their classrooms by the hundreds on Monday, the students took to the streets of several United States cities in California, Maryland and OR while carrying anti-Trump signs and flags.

In Washington, several hundred high school students marched on the Mall, the grassy esplanade that runs from the Capitol to the Lincoln Memorial, heading toward the White House. They chanted "Si, se puede" and "The people united will never be divided". "Let's look out for each other & be safe".


Funk: "It's giving us a voice since we can't vote for who we want as president". "Eventually we're going to be adults, and we need to think about our futures and the futures of the children who come after us".

One of the largest protests planned for January 21 is the Women's March on Washington, which has over 80,000 people on Facebook marked as "attending".

Following Trump's victory there have been massive high school and university student walkouts in cities across the country, including in Portland, Oakland, Philadelphia, Boston and NY.

Seattle Public Schools spokesman Luke Duecy says more than 5,000 students from 20 middle and high schools walked out of classes Monday to demonstrate.

Police warned that protesters who are not peaceful and lawful are subject to arrest for such violations as obstruction of movement of vehicles and people, refusal to obey a lawful order by a law enforcement officer, vandalism and refusal to disperse after an unlawful assembly is declared.

While Trump's supporters are calling for an end to the protests in schools, Rudy Giuliani, the former NY mayor and a senior adviser to Trump, caused more outrage when he called campus protesters "spoiled crybabies" last week.

Maryland school officials said the students all face disciplinary action unless they have an excused absence from their parents. No one was hurt.
