more immigration law protests

Protests continue in California, Texas, Nevada, Colorado, Massachusetts, and...Northern VA. Yet again, the remarkable thing is that the protests are among high schoolers and are truly grass-roots, as they have been organized locally for high school students by high school students.
I joined in when the protesters passed by my school. The rlington County Police misled many of the students into thinking we would be arrested if we went into DC. Some of the leaders of the protest (who I was talking t0) wanted to stay in Virginia - some wanted to go to DC, and as a result, the protest stayed in VA.
Initially I was one of the few non-hispanics with the group (my sister is Latino), but after someone pulled the fire alarm more students joined the group. At one point, a Wakefield bus pulled up beside us, and the police tried to convince students to pile in to go back to school. Many did. The second bus that pulled up was far less successful because one of my friends started a chant for people not to get on the bus. In general, the police tried to intimidate the students, albeit in a friendly way.
¡Si se puede!
