LAUSD high school studentswalked out of classes today to protest immigration policies, and proposals in Washington which include building a wall between the US and Mexico. It's just a preamble to tomorrow's rally which starts at 10am in downtown LA. People are unhappy about the Sensenbrenner Bill, which passed the House in December and is now coming before the Senate. That wall is some crazy shit.

The photo above of students walking out today was borrowed from the LA Times, and we hope they forgive us. It's just so... cool.
