Students walk out

WASHINGTON – Around the US they bowed their heads in honour of the dead. They carried signs with messages like “Never again” and “Am I next?” They railed against the National Rifle Association and the politicians who support it.

And over and over, they repeated the message: Enough is enough.

In a wave of protests one historian called the largest of its kind in American history, tens of thousands of students walked out of their classrooms on Wednesday to demand action on gun violence and school safety.
