In one of the largest demonstrations, some 1,500 students and teachers rallied in the courtyard of Berkeley High School in California, and then marched toward the campus of the University of California at Berkeley, a city known for its

“We’re sitting here, setting our clocks back to 1950 electing this fool. You know? Trump honestly just makes us realize how much hate and ignorance is left,” a female student told the rally, monitored via the social media app Periscope.

In downtown Los Angeles, a mostly Latino group of about 300 high school students, mostly from the Miguel Contreras Learning Complex, walked out of classes and marched to the steps of City Hall, where they held a brief but boisterous rally. Several school officials accompanied the youths as chaperones.
Chanting in Spanish, “The people united will never be defeated,” the group held signs with slogans such as “Not Supporting Racism, Not My President,” and

A representative of the Trump campaign could not be reached immediately for comment.
About a fourth of the students from Miguel Contreras are members of the so-called “Dreamers” generation, children whose undocumented parents entered the United States with them illegally, school officials said, and fear of deportation under a Trump administration is a major concern.Youth Reebok Montreal Canadiens 28 Nathan Beaulieu Authentic Away White Ice Hockey Jersey.
One of Trump’s marquee campaign pledges was to build a wall along the border with Mexico to keep out undocumented immigrants and deport en masse those who immigrated illegally.
“A child should not live in fear that they will be deported. They should not live in fear that they themselves will be deported,” said Stephanie Hipolito, one of the student organizers of the walkout. She said her parents are U.S. citizens.
“We’re not criminals. We’re not drug dealers. We’re hard-working people looking for the American dream like anybody else,” she said.
A few hundred students also walked out of classes in Seattle, Phoenix and the San Francisco Bay Area cities of Oakland, El Cerrito and Richmond. Several hundred more pupils at the University of Texas protested on campus as well, according to local reports and footage on social media.
Anti-Trump rallies were planned later Wednesday in New York, Boston, Chicago and other cities as well, according to social media postings. A Facebook page for a
Nathan Beaulieu Jersey protest scheduled for Manhattan’s Union Square Park showed more than 8,000 people planned to attend.
In Austin, Texas, about 400 people staged a peaceful protest march through the streets of the Texas capital, police said.
The demonstrations followed a night of protests around the San Francisco Bay Area and elsewhere in the country in response to Trump’s political upset.
Demonstrators smashed storefront windows and set garbage and tires ablaze late Tuesday in downtown Oakland, across the bay from San Francisco.
