Houston, TX - On Jan. 19 students at the University of Houston (UH) held a walkout to show their disgust with the election of Donald Trump.

The walkout began at noon and started with a rally followed by a march throughout campus. As the students marched through classrooms they disrupted ongoing classes and encouraged other students to walk out to protest Trump. The student marchers could be heard chanting, “Out of the classrooms, into the streets,” “Hey hey, ho ho, President Trump has to go,” and “Hey Trump, you liar! We’re here to say you’re fired!”

The walkout was organized by Students for a Democratic Society (SDS). Many other left-wing groups attended the student march to show solidarity, including the New People’s Black Panther Party, Socialist Alternative, and Freedom Road Socialist Organization.
