Whether students want to label the upcoming school walkout a protest or not, in my opinion by calling it a walkout it is an implied protest.

The purpose may have originally been born to honor victims of the shooting in Parkland, Florida, but the walkout has become part of a national movement by students to encourage legislative changes they think will help protect students.

Walking out of the school for 17 minutes in a remembrance ceremony is a beautiful gesture, but that should go hand-in-hand with a call to action, not a protest.
