The Post was on the ground with students as they demonstrated Wednesday, reporting from Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Oklahoma and here in Washington. (Here’s a Twitter list of some reporters who are out in the field.) We also tracked how these protests unfolded on social media. Below, you’ll find pictures, videos and social media activity that caught our eye.
