Hundreds of high school students angry over Donald Trump’s victory took to the streets of Maryland Monday to protest the election results.

Students at Montgomery Blair High School in Silver Spring, Md. staged a walkout at roughly 10:30 a.m., followed by a march across the football field and into the streets. The students were reportedly protesting President-elect Trump, carrying a banner reading, “Not My President,” as they marched down the road. Police appear to be escorting the protesters, reports WJLA.

There have been no reports of any arrests or injuries. Eyewitnesses said some drivers are slowing down to high-five the student protesters as they pass. The students are walking down University Boulevard in the direction  of Wheaton.

Protests have been erupting across the country since Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in the presidential election Tuesday night, some turning violent. Rioters in Portland, Ore. burned flags and destroyed or damaged storefronts, businesses and cars.

Cleaning crews spent hours power washing Trump International Hotel Thursday morning after protesters sprayed graffiti and threw blue paint on the building. Protesters carrying signs decrying racism and bigotry vented their anger over Donald Trump’s victory chanting, “No Trump! No KKK! No racist USA!”

Trump called on Americans to “come together as one united people” following the election results, but many Democrats in the area are lamenting his victory as a sign of widespread racism and hatred.
