Students at Omaha metro schools took to the streets to protest the results of Tuesday’s General Election.
Hundreds of students walked out of Omaha Central High School at 20th and Dodge Street around 9 this morning and gathered outside, held up signs and chanted “we have a voice” to “not my president”. The protest at the school was quite large but peaceful.
One student was very emotional with her cries of protest. She says, “We all deserve a chance. I’m Latina and not an immigrant. I deserve a chance. He is not my president. He will never be my president and I don’t care.”
Just after 10 this morning students at Omaha’s Northwest High School protested as well and some of those students walked into the streets. Omaha police were called to help contain the situation but there were no reports of violence or injury.
Students at Ralston High School protested yesterday.
