Evanston, IL High School Walkout Against Trump-Pence
January 24, 2017 | Revolution Newspaper | revcom.us
On Tuesday, hundreds of students from Evanston Township High School in Evanston Township, IL, walked out of class midday for a march and rally in the town square, chanting "Hey hey, ho ho, Donald Trump has got to go." The protest was started by one student putting out the call on facebook and bringing together about a dozen students as a core of organizers. At the rally, this student said "If you are not outraged, you are not paying attention. Protesting is only step one."
One student told the press that she cried for three days after the election. Another said “we are scared and angry.” Others recognized the danger under Trump-Pence to people who are different, which includes some of these youth that took part in the protest.
