From Washington D.C. and New York City to Spain and Tokyo, millions of people are participating in “March For Our Lives” demonstrations on Saturday, standing up to the NRA and demanding action on to curb gun violence in the United States.
It’s a massive demonstration of solidarity with the survivors of the Parkland school shooting, which took 17 lives last month. The world is joining together in one voice to say enough is enough.
An amazing view of the start of the #MarchForOurLives in D.C.
I hope the politicians and lawmakers are watching.

This is just a small snapshot of the more than 800 demonstrations that took place as part of the “March For Our Lives” event that was organized in the span of just over a month by Parkland survivors.
Ahead of the November midterm elections, it should have the Republican Party – and the gun lobby that funnels money into their campaigns – running for their political lives.
