Milpitas High School students held a campus wide fourth period walkout Thursday to protest the election of Donald Trump as the next president of the United States and to express their fears and concerns.
Students have walked out of schools, and protests have taken place in several cities following Republican Donald Trump's election win.
The students walked down the block to the campus of another school, with one holding the Mexican flag.
The Bay Area has been the scene of several demonstrations since Trump's victory was announced early Wednesday morning.
"What's not okay is getting a call of a "peaceful demonstration" that was anything but", Mesa said.
Students lined a fence bordering a soccer field, chanting and waving signs at cars passing on Arapahoe Road.
North High School students were at the Capitol as well. On Wednesday, they awoke to potentially more complex task: How to explain what a Trump presidency could mean for their students.
Further, for many female students, the election of Donald Trump, a man who has bragged about sexually assaulting women and been accused of sexual assault, rather than the election of his opponent - Hillary Clinton, the first woman presidential nominee from a major political party - is another stinging form of rebuke.
Students spoke at the rally, which was attended by some school district staff members and local elected officials, Emmett said. By 1 p.m., students marching from Albany High School reached campus, also demonstrating at the Campanile's base. "We are working with our school board to create supports".
"I definitely think it's a day when people really let their voices be heard through the voting process", Diaz said.
Most of the students left quietly, heeding Rucobo's requests to keep to the sidewalks and to clean up after themselves.
Anti-Trump rallies were planned later Wednesday in New York, Boston, Chicago and other cities as well, according to social media postings. At one point, a lone Trump supporter was chased across Pioneer Courthouse Square and hit in the back with a skateboard before others intervened. Nicholas Elliot, a student at Washington's Georgetown University, said he was elated about Trump's election.
