NYC Students Walk Out to Protest Assault on Gaza

HeadlineFeb 19, 2024

Here in New York, high school students across the city walked out of class Friday for their second mass coordinated action against the war on Gaza. Students are continuing to organize despite what they say are attempts by school administrators to intimidate and censor them.

Protester: “We students recognize that we have a direct responsibility to act here, where our institutions’ complicity with Zionism has been made loud and clear. We recognize our responsibility to the people of Gaza and stand in unwavering solidarity with them.”
