Students in USA took part in protest on Wednesday. Tens of thousands of high-schoolers walked out of their schools to protest against gun violence. They chose March 14 for their protest as that marks month since February 14 Florida shooting in which 17 students lost their lives. At Stoneman Douglas High School, where last month's tragedy took place, students gathered on football field for 17 minutes to remember their lost classmates. One student said: "The walkout was for those who will never be here again, but we're fighting for those who might be next." Another student said: "I came out because of what happened in Florida, but also because of what happens in my neighborhood every day."
In U.S. capital, Washington DC, hundreds of students gathered outside White House to protest. They sat with their backs turned to building for 17 minutes. They then took part in chants against powerful gun group National Rifle Association (NRA). U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren joined crowds and spoke at rally outside the Capitol building. She said: "The NRA has held Congress hostage for years now. These young people have shown up to free us. I believe young people will lead us." Many of students in crowd wanted to remind President Donald Trump that they would be old enough to vote in 2020 elections, so he should listen to them now.
