UNLV students walk out of class to protest gun violence

UNLV students walk out of class to protest gun violence

Another student walk-out sweeps the nation today, on the 19th anniversary of the Columbine school shooting.

Student protests have been a frequent occurrence nationally since the February 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida that left 17 people dead.

As a result, Forest High School's walk out was cancelled.

Some of the students said they've never been in trouble before or had in school suspension but believed the walkout was the right thing to do.

"There have been so many school shootings and my generation itself has been born into this", Izzy Black, 17, a junior at Iowa Park High said.

Some South Pasadena students planned to walk to the Metro station after their leaving their campus and take a train to Pershing Square, where they planned to join other students for a rally.

Almost two dozen students from Grain Valley High School participated in the walkout with parental permission around 10 a.m., according to that school district.

Students from four other high schools in the county also attended the event. "We're still going to have school shootings and we're still going to have an issue with guns".

Marchers talked about how the issue of school shootings should have been solved then and not be an issue almost twenty years later. Many wore orange, a colour that has come to represent the movement against gun violence, as they observed a 13-second silence in honour of those killed at Columbine.

"I think a lot of people expect this to go away and expect us to lose interest but this is not a trend this is us saying enough is enough", Belcastro said. "It happens every day and people don't pay attention to it", she said.

Several students participated in the call for change, Zackariah Farah, a senior at Bloomfield Hills High School, said his brother was a victim of what he calls "weak gun laws".

High school students in the San Francisco Bay Area and Los Angeles also took part in rallies.
