Students are walking out in at least 3 different cities. I don't know the background on this. But, I do know
More than 1,000 students, many of them from 40 Twin Cities area high schools, protested today against the war in Iraq and military recruiters on campus.
Update This is the first day of the World can't wait walkouts, so here's the link to that site. I assume they'll be updating.
World Can't Wait
I think a walkout is great. If young people are spurred to this kind of action, then that means there is really something hitting home.
No doubt, there will be those on the right who are saying that all of this is orchestrated to coincide with the actions of the Senate yesterday.
