How Highschool Students Led a City Wide Protest

(11/14/23 12:34am)

On October 20th, 3 CAPA students led a rally protesting against the occupation of Palestine. Students walked out of their classrooms at 11:30 am and marched to city hall, demanding the government to call for a ceasefire. The protest was by all means a success, reaching not just fellow CAPA students but also high schoolers from all across the city who also walked out. As they marched in circles around city hall, 200 pupils marched along with them. After the protest, I had a chance to sit down with Laila and Nora, two of the three girls who led the walkout.
