Hundreds of High School Students Stage Anti-Trump Walkout

Hundreds of students from one Maryland high school walked out of class Monday morning and took to the streets in opposition of President-elect Donald Trump.

Montgomery County Public Schools spokeswoman Gboyinde Onijala said that approximately 800 Montgomery Blair High school students attended the protest that took place on the school’s football field.

The walkout happened at approximate 10:30 a.m., and while many students went back to class, others marched three miles from the school to downtown Silver Spring. They eventually arrived at the parking deck of a mall where one person threw a bottle, according to NBC Washington.

The students chanted “Not my president” as they participated in the protest that remained peaceful.

There were no reports of any injuries or arrests, and police have left discipline for the students up to the school.
