Women’s March Plans ‘National School Walkout’ to Protest Guns

“We need action.”

The Women’s March has planned a “National School Walkout” for March 14, the month anniversary of the Valentine’s Day massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida.

It was announced on Facebook:

Women’s March Youth EMPOWER is calling for students, teachers, school administrators, parents and allies to take part in a #NationalSchoolWalkout for 17 minutes at 10am across every time zone on March 14, 2018 to protest Congress’ inaction to do more than tweet thoughts and prayers in response to the gun violence plaguing our schools and neighborhoods. We need action. Students and allies are organizing the national school walkout to demand Congress pass legislation to keep us safe from gun violence at our schools, on our streets and in our homes and places of worship.

The 17 minutes honors the 17 lives lost in the school shooting. The Left has had enough with “empty” thoughts and prayers and want nothing short of a repeal of the Second Amendment:

Students and staff have the right to teach and learn in an environment free from the worry of being gunned down in their classrooms or on their way home from school.

Parents have the right to send their kids to school in the mornings and see them home alive at the end of the day.

We are not safe at school. We are not safe in our cities and towns. Congress must take meaningful action to keep us safe and pass federal gun reform legislation that address the public health crisis of gun violence. We want Congress to pay attention and take note: many of us will vote this November and many others will join in 2020. 

Join us in saying #ENOUGH!

One survivor from the school has tweeted a walkout scheduled for next week in Florida they hope goes nationwide:
