Thousands of San Diego County students walked out of classes this morning (March 14) as part of a nationwide action in memory of the 17 people killed in last month's school shooting in Florida and urge federal action to curb gun violence.

Students at Mission Bay High School gathered at 10 a.m. as part of the national protest against gun violence at schools. The national protest was scheduled on the day of the one-month anniversary of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., which took the lives of 17 people.

The Mission Bay protest began on a grass field in the rear of the school, with students then proceeding through campus to stand out front of the school on Grand Avenue. Students traded off carrying a bullhorn leading chants including “We want change,” “All these guns have got to go” and “No more silence, end all violence.”

Many cars passing by on Grand Avenue honked supporting the cause of the students and their right to protest peacefully. The demonstration last 18 minutes, which included one minute of silence, and one minute each for the 17 victims of the Florida shooting.
