Hundreds Of NYC Students Took Over Fifth Ave Yesterday With A Message For Donald Trump

The pouring rain didn’t deter hundreds of high school students from leaving their classes to march down Fifth Avenue and protest outside of Trump Tower yesterday. 

Following the seventh straight day of protests in large cities throughout the country, NYC and Washington DC saw high school students joining the seemingly endless Anti-Trump movement. Hundreds of NYC high school and college students from around 15 private and public schools battled the wet weather as they marched down Fifth Avenue chanting “Anti-Trump“, “We reject the president-elect” and “Education not Deportation.”

The message was loud and clear. Students aren’t exempt from the shock many Americans feel towards the President-elect’s extreme-right campaign messages and his upset election victory. The high schoolers expressed their disapproval of Mr. Trumps views on immigration, his campaign comments about the LGBT community, but more importantly, their disapproval, fear and anger towards an election they could not directly influence. 

The “walkout” followed a facebook and instacram call-to-action that spread rapidly across the networks, according to attendees of the rally.

The young protesters gathered at 10:30 am across 56th Street from a heavily fortified Trump Tower. Their 50 block march moved from Trump Tower to Washington Square Park and took up the length of two city blocks. Take a look at footage and images from the march below:
