Student walkouts sweep US in protest against gun violence, 1 month after deadly Parkland shooting

Students in schools across the US are walking out of their classrooms as part of a mass protest against gun violence. The nationwide demonstration is taking place to mark one month since the Florida school shooting.

The walkouts are taking place at 10am in every timezone and are scheduled to last 17 minutes as a tribute to the 17 people who were killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School last month.
