Amnesty International USA joins March for Our Lives Against Gun Violence

Helen and Katie Dugan

Thousands of students and gun-control advocates gathered Saturday morning throughout the Bay Area to take part in demonstrations as part of the nationwide March for Our Lives spurred by last month's deadly Parkland, Florida high school shooting. District of Columbia officials have said they were preparing for a crowd of 500,000.

Seven percent overall said the march would hurt the cause; 12 percent of Republicans, 7 percent of independents and 3 percent of Democrats agreed, along with 10 percent of gun owners.

Federal agents and D.C. police will be deployed to provide security for the crowd, which is expected to equal the size of the Women's March a year ago and the Obama presidential inaugurations.

Students throughout the country feel the massacre in Parkland, Florida was not only a wakeup call but a turning point.

"This is a call to action to our Congress and state legislators", Fanaeiau said.

High school students in Ottawa will also be marching Saturday "in solidarity with American students", said Ainsley Skelly, a Grade 11 student at Nepean High School one of the organizers of the local protest.

"What we're doing is because we're not scared of these adults", Corin said, "because we have nothing to lose, we don't have an election to lose, we don't have a job to lose - we just have our lives to lose".

"It's part of our pro-life stance if we really believe life is sacred from conception to natural death", he concluded.

"We can't ignore the issues of gun control that this tragedy raises. Kids being exhausted of their friends being taken away from them", she said.

"Richmond Public Schools continues to grieve with the Parkland community and stand with them as they work to heal and move forward", RPS said in a statement.

I would like to address the notion the article's publication was irresponsible as if it did not serve a objective: I wanted to capture the shop and the employees there as they were: which was friendly, knowledgeable and at every point, advocating that anyone who purchased weapons from them did so safely. Hundreds of students participated in a walkout last week, and Friday, they organized a rally, with a variety of speakers and workshops.

"Through a series of events, we learned that we were not welcome", Robinson said.

"Our generation is the generation of change".

Our Republican leaders have turned away from sensible gun-control legislation in schools by suggesting that teachers and other school personnel be armed, etc., authorizing $50 million to be spent for school safety.
