March 27-31: Nationwide Week of Massive Student Walkouts for Immigrant Rights, and Fight Against Police Repression Against Students!
National Immigrant Solidarity Network Alert!


On Monday March 27th, word spread fast around high schools in California and across the nation that students would be walking out of their classes in protest of the anti-immigrant legislation known as HR 4437. House bill HR 4437 would make being an undocumented immigrant a felony and criminalize anyone who offered non-emergency assistance to undocumented workers and their families. The demonstrations continued Tuesday and grew in number. >> Read the photo reports byLA IMC | Report by Don White

3/30: Student Walkouts - The Next Step (National Immigration Law Center)

Reports from across the country

Northern California

The walkouts have included thousands of students in Fresno, Aptos, Watsonville, Hollister and Salinas. Police have dealt harshly with many of the students while other authority figures have both offered support for the student's cause and simultaneously urged students to remain in school. School districts, working with local police, have now begun to implement lockdowns to prevent students from leaving campuses. Nevertheless, the actions continued Wednesday and more are planned for the near future. >> Read More

Los Angeles: La Gran Walkout, to City Hall

3/27: 25,000 students walked out of school today to protest anti-immigrant reform!

Leslie Radford reports: Today I met 2,000 of them walking to City Hall. I heard them on the streets, the cheering, chanting crew, the police sirens, the helicopter circling. By the time I shook loose from what I was doing, they'd passed by, so I jumped in my car to catch up with them marching down Cesar Chavez. A thousand students, spread over blocks, were walking down the sidewalk, with a police escort shutting down a lane of traffic . Full Story: La Gran Walkout, to City Hall by Leslie Radford

April 1: North High Students March to City Hall

Santa Ana, CA


Details are still sketchy, but it appears that the Orange County Treasurer/Tax Collector's office and a number of other government agencies were shut down yesterday when Santa Ana high school students flooded them in protest of anti-immigration legislation.


Several of Santa Ana's poorest working class Mexican neighborhoods suddenly found themselves under a state of siege last night when an estimated two hundred Santa Ana police officers, Orange County Sheriff's deputies, and California Highway patrolmen descended into the area and squelched a peaceful protest near the intersection of Bristol and McFadden Streets.


San Diego, CA

3/31: A 6,000 strong march of mostly students culminated a week of student walkouts.

[San Diego IMC} The march went through barrio logan and sherman heights. Many bystanders showed support, standing on their porches or on top of buildings, waving mexican flags. Lots of people from the community joined the march as it went by.

Students walked out of high schools all over San Diego and as the marches arrived at Chicano Park, the crowd roared. Some students simply didn't go to school. SDSU, City College and UCSD students were in attendance as well. Report Photo

Police Repression Against Students

From Los Angeles to Houston, it's clears that the police are begin using repressive means to attack and arrest walk out students.

On March 29, The Los Angeles School district and police are enforcing a crack down on student walk outs today. All high schools are on lock down and police cars are patrolling the perimeter of some of those high schools that have seen the largest walk out in the past three days.

Still this crack down did not prevent about 50 students from Westchester High from staging a walkout and march to the offices of Univision this morning. They were able to meet with an anchor from the station. The students were followed by police squad cars, one police helicopter and 2 media helicopters. After staging a short rally and speaking with the newsman from Univision the students voluntarily boarded 2 school buses and were taken back to school. The march was peaceful and there were no arrests. The students will, however, be cited with truancy.


In a clear reversal by city officials, educators and police, student protesters today faced campus lockdowns, arrests and threats with both Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and Schools Superintendent Ray Romer threatening consequences to further student protests and "truancy."
