Regrann from @politico - Five survivors of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida announced plans on Sunday for a nationwide march, as well as a demonstration in Washington to call for legislative action to prevent gun violence.
During a spate of TV appearances Sunday morning, students Jaclyn Corin, Emma Gonzalez, David Hogg, Cameron Kasky and Alex Wind unveiled plans to mobilize students to urge lawmakers to act in response to Wednesday's fatal shooting in Parkland, Florida, that claimed the lives of 17 of their fellow classmates and school staffers.
"We're marching because it's not just schools. It's movie theaters, it's concerts, it's nightclubs," Wind told NBC's "Meet the Press." "This kind of stuff can't just happen. You know, we are marching for our lives, we're marching for the 17 lives we lost. And we're marching for our children's lives and our children's children and their children."
The national demonstration, set to take place March 24, will feature calls for lawmakers to take up legislative remedies to improve mental health and expand regulations on guns, the students said. -CRISTIANO LIMA 📷 @gettyimages
