Students from across the country are planning to participate in a coordinated national walkout on Wednesday in response to the high school shooting in Parkland.

Before Tuesday evening’s Fort Lauderdale City Commission meeting, protesters gathered outside City Hall with signs asking motorists to honk if they wanted to end the gun shows that take place at Holiday Park eight times a year.  


This was not Barbara Markley’s first gun show protest outside of Fort Lauderdale’s City Hall. It was her sixth. 

Students across Tampa Bay are expected to participate in a national school walkout on March 14 - the one-month anniversary of the shooting at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School.

Many Tampa Bay schools are letting staff help students organize events, rather than punishing them for missing class or disrupting campus.

To help fund a national gun-control movement, a small group of South Florida students who survived the worst high school shooting in U.S. history set up a modest website Sunday and created a GoFundMe account to pursue an ambitious goal: raise $1 million.

They’ve received more than three times that amount. In four days.

Students around South Florida participated in classroom walkouts one week after the mass school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High in Parkland, Fl.

The walkouts were to begin at noon and last 17 minutes, one minute for each life lost in last week's shooting. Organizers called them an act of compassion for the lives lost and to make a statement about the need for gun law reform.
