Students Yell 'Kill The Bill', Get Boot

Boise Police Department and Idaho State Police officers ushered protesting students out of the state Capitol on Monday afternoon, after roughly 150 students demonstrating against school superintendent Tom Luna's education-reform proposals began chanting in the rotunda. With students on the three floors shouting "Kill the Bill," the noise reached every corner of the Capitol. Officers escorted the students down the steps, out of the building and across Jefferson St. "It was just getting a little out of hand. It was distrubing and regular business could not proceed," said ISP Capt. Brian Zimmerman. "They've been very cooperative. They've followed our directions. They can be anywhere they want in this public building, they just have to be a little bit more civil"/Idaho Statesman. More here.

Question: Did you take part in a demonstration, as a kid or young adult?
