Barnstable students to hold 'March for Our Lives' event

Marvell Reed

With support from her government teacher, mother and fellow students, Dortch organized a March for Our Lives event, which will meet at noon Saturday at the Riverwalk amphitheater.

March For Our Lives, an event to push for gun law reform, is Saturday in Wilmington.

March For Our Lives believes the time is now. The march will take place Saturday.

Members of the newly established Cape Cod Student Board, which was organized in the wake of the February 14 shooting, say the Hyannis march is inspired by "the fearless teen survivors of Parkland, Florida".

Two of the local student organizers, Roberto Vargas, from Jefferson, and Sarah Grall from Auburn, spoke with Eyewitness News' Jay Leonardi on Wednesday morning's news.

The march hopes to reach Boston Common at 12 p.m.

But what lead the 15-year-old student to organize an event of her own?

Miley Cyrus has also confirmed her participation.

A "controversial proposal to force staff to give up a day's holiday in exchange for a rise has been dropped", says The Times . It brings to an end seven years of pay freezes and today has been recommended by 14 health unions, although not the GMB.

In January, however, gun violence hit home for Toomey, who lives on the North Side. "That's an absolute "no" that we set from the very beginning of organization", Petit-Homme said.

After another similar conversation on Valentine's Day, Dortch looked at her mother and told her they need a revolution. Students at 3,000 schools protested gun violence in the wake of the deaths of students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

Parkland students spearheading the movement made the NY talk show rounds on Monday, and Chicago area students did the same on Tuesday, appearing on Windy City Live and partnering with the city's staunchest gun control advocates.

"On March 24, this movement will take to the streets to demand we end the epidemic of mass shootings", March For Our Lives organizers stated on Twitter. After her school was threatened and put on lockdown in December, she said she was motivated to create change. "It doesn't make sense for them to be on stage, say how much they support us, how great things are".

At School District of Manatee County schools, the walkouts were kept to school campuses, and members of the community were not able to participate except outside of school property. PLEASE NOTE: Press credentials will not be issued ad hoc for the March for Our Lives. On March 9, Gov. Rick Scott signed the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Public Safety Act, a gun/school safety piece of legislation.

"This isn't about money, it isn't about taking away your Second Amendment, it isn't about taking away your rights".
