Protesters continue to flood streets across the nation after Donald Trump’s win of the presidential election. Students in California high schools staged walkouts, while many marched onto streets and other California campuses.

Several East Bay school students walked out in protest, according to CBS San Francisco.

Berkeley Unified School District Spokesman Charles Burress said that approximately 1500 students from Berkley High School participated in the walkouts.

“Donald Trump may be president, but we are going to make sure that this man, that he is going to prioritize the wellbeing of the people, so please join us in this fight,” said an unidentified student during the protest according to CBS SF.

High schoolers in Maryland and Southern California also participated in some form of protest Nov. 14.

“I feel anyone, any race, should come here and feel welcome,” said ninth grade student Jorge Ventura, 15, of Montgomery Blair High School in Silver Spring, Maryland to The Washington Post.

A rally was planned at Mariachi Plaza Nov. 14 to protest president-elect Donald Trump according to NBC4 News.

“The message is that we will not accept Trump’s sexism, racism, his put-down on LGBT folk, people of color, immigrants, basically minorities,” said Arlene Contreras, a student at Mendez High School in Boyle Heights, to ABC7 News.

School faculty members were also walking with students to help keep them safe.

Protests also took place on College and University campuses throughout the nation along with demonstrations throughout cities including Chicago, Manhattan, and Washington D.C.

Students showed their solidarity and unity through peaceful protest and carrying Mexico and US flags.
