MASSIVE ANTI-GUN VIOLENCE PROTESTS EXPECTED THIS WEEKEND: Nearly 1 million people are expected in Washington Saturday for the "March for Our Lives" gun control rally and more than 800 sister marches from California to Japan


MASSIVE ANTI-GUN VIOLENCE PROTESTS EXPECTED THIS WEEKEND: Nearly 1 million people are expected in Washington Saturday for the "March for Our Lives" gun control rally and more than 800 sister marches from California to Japan ... In the wake of the Parkland, Fla., school massacre that killed 17, teen activists have pulled all-nighters, scheduling speakers, petitioning city councils, renting stages and walking march routes with police in a grass-roots movement that has raised more than $4 million. Students are expected to walk down Pennsylvania Avenue during the March for Our Lives on Saturday alongside pop stars Ariana Grande, Jennifer Hudson, Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato. Several student organizers have become mainstays on national TV, promoting the marches, and they landed on the cover of Time magazine. Oprah Winfrey and George and Amal Clooney have each donated $500,000. The cast of "Modern Family" did a public service announcement, and Broadway stars Lin-Manuel Miranda and Ben Platt recorded a song for the march.

The Hollywood firepower behind these marches has prompted some critics to wonder whether liberals have taken advantage of the Parkland tragedy and vulnerable teens and are using them for their anti-gun agenda. "They like to believe we're puppets, they like to believe that we're being controlled by someone else because ... they don't want to believe that human beings have this power because if they have this power then they might not need a gun," Marjory Stoneman Douglas senior Ryan Deitsch told the Associated Press.

  1. Gun violence is increased a lot in school in past few years and I think this is a great initiative to stop gun violence. I would share this article at https://qanda.typicalstudent.org/, a platform for students, teachers and other related people to discuss their thoughts and experiences on learning and other topics. Thanks for posting.
