Students from the Eastside of Los Angeles left classes Monday morning and staged a walkout to protest the election of Donald Trump as president of the United States. Students are protesting Trump's call for the deportation of undocumented immigrants, the construction of a wall between the U.S. and Mexico, and the repeal of the Affordable Care Act, among other things.
The protests follow a weekend of demonstrations in downtown Los Angeles and Hollywood.
- On Sunday, a few hundred people gathered outside CNN's L.A. headquarters. Protests were also held in San Francisco, Philadelphia and more cities.
- On Saturday, about 8,000 protesters marched from MacArthur Park to the federal building in downtown. Five people were arrested.
- Police arrested 187 adults and eight juveniles during a downtown L.A. rally that stretched from Friday night into early Saturday.
In what has become a familiar scene since election day, about 100 marchers began making their way through downtown Los Angeles tonight.
There haven't been any arrests yet, but the graffiti that has marked the protests seems to be continuing, including some on a news van.
