Student walkouts sweep the US. In an unprecedented show of unity and political solidarity, waves of students marched out of class Wednesday to demand stricter gun laws and an end to school massacres.
The National School Walkout started at 10 a.m. ET and will continue across the country at 10 a.m. In each time zone. The protest was sparked by last month's school massacre in Parkland, Florida, and fueled by years of anger about what many say are inadequate gun laws. Ref. CNN.
