Janet Mefferd On Student Gun Control Protests: 'Enough Is Enough'”

Survivors of that school shooting organizes the March for Our Lives in Washington, D.C. and students around the nation organized similar events to let legislators know that it is time for action. On Saturday, March 24th, Utah students will march from West High School to the State Capitol from 11 a.m.to 1 p.m.

Therefore, I want to make a change to ensure that this event will not happen again.

"We have never lived in a world where there weren't major school shootings", said Kate Lebrun, 18. Every day in school we learn how great the United States is, yet we have classmates dying in the very places they are supposed to be learning. "We are firsthand witnesses to the kind of devastation that gross incompetence and political inaction can produce", wrote the students, who work for the Stoneman Douglas school newspaper The Eagle Eye.

The school shooting in Parkland, Florida, earlier this year, and subsequent news coverage have sparked, and highlighted, student activism around the country to address gun violence.

Israeli sentencing of Ahed Tamimi symbolises conflict
Human Rights Watch criticized Ahed Tamimi's pretrial detention, calling it "both a violation of global law and unnecessary". A year after the incident , the military prosecution closed the case and decided that Shomer would not be put on trial.

"We are not the future of our country, we are the country", she said.

Thousands are also expected to protest gun violence in the Philadelphia area Saturday.

Several student organizers have become mainstays on national TV, promoting the marches, and they landed on the cover of Time magazine.

Congress must take most of the blame for the Parkland massacre, the Orlando massacre, the Vegas massacre, the Sandy Hook massacre and the Aurora massacre by allowing assault-style weapons to be so easily purchased. Beyond major cities, they will include demonstrations in Las Vegas, where a gunman killed 58 people at a country music festival a year ago; in Parkland, home to Stoneman Douglas; and in Jonesboro, Arkansas, where the community is marking the 20th anniversary of a middle school shooting that left four students and a teacher dead.

But the government rejected it. "Even the Bangladeshi men had confirmed they were separated from the group of Indians", he said. Masih claimed to have escaped to the Kurdish-controlled city of Erbil after surviving the execution, The Guardian reported.

"It's surrender", said Wylie Greer, a student speaker from Greenbrier High School. "After countless shootings and 'thoughts and prayers, ' we all realized it was up to us to make the change we wanted to see".

In Boston, a group of about 25 counter-protesters gathered in front of the gold-domed MA statehouse to decry calls for tougher gun laws. "I'm hoping for a lot of people this whole movement isn't going to end on March 24, and we're going to keep it going afterwards".

Elnakib also said organizers will use the march to honor 22-year-old Stephon Clark, an unarmed black man who was shot and killed by Sacramento police in his grandmother's backyard Sunday night.

The local March for Our Lives will take place on Main Street starting at 10 a.m. Participants will gather at the First Congregational Church, 73 S. Palouse St., before setting out.
