High School Students Organize in Oakland, CA

Chanting “We need justice” and explaining “we’re tired of that s__t. We’re not going to take it anymore,” hundreds of high school students in Oakland marched and rallied to protest police violence and racism. We should remember the role that the youth of this age – and even younger – played in the Civil Rights Movement of the ’60s. This is another sign that “this is not a moment; it’s a movement,” that history is being made here.
