New Orleans students organizing March for Our Lives for gun control


In the wake of the killings of 17 people ? mostly students ? at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, thousands of students around the U.S. have galvanized against gun lobbyists, manufacturers and the elected officials to which they've donated millions of dollars.

That mass student-level organizing has been amplified by social media, acting not only as a living document of the violence committed in schools but a platform on which conservative thinktanks and politicians are routinely ratioed to death by teenagers who aren?t at all interested in thoughts and prayers followed by inaction.

?It was inspiring seeing students who are passionate this stand up and saying, ?OK, that?s it. That?s enough,?? says Benjamin Franklin High School student Olivia Keefe says.?
