Florida shooting: students walk out of schools to call for gun control

Students across the US are walking out of their schools to protest against gun violence and demand stricter gun laws after the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school in Parkland, Florida.

They're marching in solidarity with the survivors of the second deadliest public school shooting in US history to call for a ban on the sale of assault rifles of the sort used to kill 17 students and educators last week.

We encourage AMBYESE students to think of ways to become politically and socially active in their communities.
