Students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School are using the power of political action in response to a traumatic event.
Survivors of last week's Parkland, Florida shooting, which left 17 people dead, are calling for national protests. ABC News reports that students are calling on cities across the country to mobilize "March for Our Lives" demonstrations on Saturday, March 24.
"This isn't about the GOP," 11th-grader Cameron Kasky told ABC News. "This isn't about the Democrats. This is about the adults. We feel neglected and at this point, you're either with us or against us."
Students Emma Gonzalez, David Hogg, Alex Wind, and Jaclyn Corin were also interviewed on air as well.
This hasn't been the only response from Parkland students: Their criticism of conservative pundit Tomi Lahren have gone viral on Twitter, and Gonzalez presented a powerful speech where she urged for gun control and called out both Trump and the NRA, in Fort Lauderdale. Another student begged for gun control on national television during a CNN interview.
Two other nationwide actions are planned, according to USA Today. One is on March 14, which marks the one-month anniversary of the shooting. The event calls for students and teachers to walk out of their classrooms at 10:00 AM for 17 minutes to honor the 17 lives lost to gun violence. Another is planned for April 20 to mark the 19th anniversary of the Columbine massacre, which left 15 dead in Colorado.
The 19-year-old Parkland shooting suspect, Nikolas Cruz, was allegedly involved with a white supremacist organization. The FBI was reportedly warned about Cruz last fall because of his alarming online presence.
