On Saturday March 24, over 800 marches took place across the globe as hundreds of thousands of adults and students organized to protest the government’s unwillingness to pass comprehensive, common-sense gun laws in order to stop the epidemic of mass shootings in the United States, which overwhelmingly take place in schools. The main event took place in Washington DC, but there were many other marches across the world, both small and large, including one in Santa Rosa, in Old Courthouse Square. There were marches on every continent except for Antarctica. The event was started and organized by students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida – survivors of the Parkland shooting that took place in the middle of February. The goal of the event was to “demand that a comprehensive and effective bill be immediately brought before Congress to address these gun issues.” President Trump was noticeably absent from the event and refrained from issuing his own personal statement. To no surprise, he spent the day golfing at Mar-A-Lago while Americans flooded the streets to call for long-overdue gun regulations. Little to no action has been taken by Congress, but the students of America are not giving up, and have planned another nationwide school walkout on April 20 – the anniversary of the Columbine shooting.
