These were members of SDS (Students for a Democratic Society). You may remember them from their famous riot at the 1068 Democratic party convention.

Students bash Trump piñata to protest one year in office

Students for a Democratic Society at the University of South Florida held an event to “bash racism and austerity” while smacking a Trump piñata on Tuesday.

Video obtained by Red Alert Politics shows a woman hitting a small Trump piñata over and over again while students stand around and cheer.

The event, according to a Facebook, was to protest President Trump “1 year after his inauguration.”

“Join us and fight back against the Trump Administration’s attacks on immigrants and other marginalized people!” reads the Facebook post.

According to the University of South Florida student organization website, “Students for a Democratic Society is a student group that seeks to unite leftwing and progressive students and teach them to become organizers and activists in their communities.” They also “aim to forge relations with labor unions, fight social injustice, and fight for free public education for all students.”

Students for a Democratic Society is one of more than 600 recognized student groups at the University of South Florida, which are partially funded through a fee paid by each student.
