PARK, Fla. – Thousands of people filled a park in the near marjory Stoneman Douglas high School at a “march for Our Lives” rally near the site of the last month of the school massacre in the Park, Florida.
Saturday’s rally in South Florida had the feel of a campaign event. Students wore maroon T-shirts — the school is a color — and chanted slogans such as “enough is enough.” They carried signs that read, “why do your guns more than our lives?” and “our ballots will stop bullets.”
The organisers said 20,000 people were attending the rally.
After the rally, participants will march 2 miles to Stoneman Douglas. They will pass the school in a silence to honor the 17 victims of the Feb. 14 shooting.
