Students protested against gun violence. They walked out of their schools a month after 17 students were killed in Florida. Students stood for 17 minutes for their dead friends. One student said: "The walkout was for those...who might be next." Another student said: "I came...because of what happens in my neighborhood every day."
In Washington DC, students sat with their backs to the White House for 17 minutes. They chanted against a gun group called the NRA. A U.S. senator said: "These young people have shown up to free us. I believe the young people will lead us." Students want President Trump to listen to them now because they will be voters in 2020.
