Roosevelt High School students walked out at 1:45 p.m., headed down 15th Ave N.E. as a group and joined up with Ballard, Garfield, Ingraham, and Nathan Hale students at Red Square on the UW campus. The protest then headed to Representative Frank Chopp‘s office on University Way N.E., where the students delivered handmade signs with with their signatures that read “Fund Us” and “No More Cuts.”
The event was coordinated by Students of Washington for Change (SoWC), a student-run movement in Washington State that aims to raise awareness and take action on issues related to student rights.
We’ve compiled a timeline of tweets and photos from the protest below, along with a video produced (we assume) by a student involved in the event.
