For third straight day, students in DC area schools hold post-election demonstrations

-
For the third straight day, students at D.C. area schools have held post-election protests aimed at President-elect Donald Trump.
 
Students at Richard Montgomery and James Hubert Blake High Schools in Montgomery County walked out of class Wednesday and demonstrated in the street. They led their demonstrations to downtown Rockville where they held a protest rally in front of the courthouse.

Wednesday’s protest comes one day after hundreds of students in D.C. schools walked out of class and marched to the International Trump Hotel, the U.S. Capitol, and the National Mall. A DC police officer told FOX 5's Matt Ackland on Tuesday that they estimated about 3,000 students attended the event, though only hundreds were expected.

On Monday, similar demonstrations were held in Montgomery County when hundreds of students from Montgomery Blair, Northwood, Albert Einstein and John F. Kennedy High Schools  took to the streets to declare their opposition to Trump. The demonstrations were centered on the Silver Spring and Wheaton areas, and the events were peaceful. No arrests were reported.
