College students across the country began to amass late Tuesday night following the announcement of Donald Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton to protest the election results. Taking to the streets, many expressed their outrage with shouts of “Not my president!” and “No more Trump!”
According to the University of California, Santa Barbara’s student newspaper, the Daily Nexus, hundreds of students filed out of dorm rooms to protest the Republican president elect. Demonstrations were reported on a handful of other campuses throughout California — where Clinton had a wide margin of victory — specifically at the University of California, San Diego; University of California, Santa Cruz; University of California, San Francisco; University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA); and University of California, Irvine, where a student was seen waving a Mexican flag.
Officials said that between 1,500 and 3,000 students marched across UCLA’s campus, with some heard shouting explicit slurs directed at Trump. It was also reported that someone had defaced city property; however, no arrests were made.
Furthermore, in San Francisco, a 20-year-old student was injured after being hit by a car as protestors attempted to block the highway and ignited several trashcan fires.
Student protestors also marched in Portland, Ore.; Washington, D.C.; and Pittsburg, where some University of Pittsburgh students called for unity, according to the Associated Press.
