If you are an adult, don't talk to your parents about it anymore, and don't let them bait you into discussing it if they bring it up - just make non-committal responses. If you are not an adult - well I guess you just have to accept that your parents still have authority over some of your actions (and going to another city to a large-scale protest probably lands in their jurisdiction). Count the days until you're 18 or independent of them, whichever comes last.
