  • CAPA Students Stage Walkout In Response To Florida High School Shooting

The walk lasted 17 minutes - one minute for each life taken at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on February 14.

She said she's communicated with students at Downey, Modesto, Ceres, Davis and other high schools who want to get their campuses involved. "I really didn't want to go to school the next day, and someone in my history class dropped a binder or something and it made such a loud noise that I jumped in my seat".

In Worcester County, sophomore Belle Croteau is organizing a walkout at Northbridge High School.

"Your parents will be notified that you were not present for class, but my guess is they already know".

"I remained at the school for the remainder of the day to provide support and/or guidance", she said. "The last time this happened about six or seven years ago, the students went on a march and hundreds of kids spent their lunch in the gym".

Waukesha North High School and some students are now working on an organized event to honor the Florida school shooting victims separate from the national political organization.

After the superintendent sent a message to parents about the walkout, he wanted to clarify what students would be allowed to do.

Students from Hellgate and Sentinel high schools gathered on both sides of the Higgins Avenue Bridge, holding signs and chanting for gun control.

Eliana Lambros, 16, said she left class to protest gun violence and easy access to weapons.

"Unfortunately gun violence we face, we can't time when that happens, but what we can do is support our young people who are concerned about safety at school", said Suzie Norris.

Holly Welborn, policy director for the ACLU of Nevada, urged schools to provide a space for students to be able to express how they're feeling. "I do not feel safe at school and I want to feel safe at school".

Carter said the walkout is just the start of many planned demonstrations from CAPA students.

"We are protesting gun violence (and) lawmakers turning their backs on the issue, and hoping to promote awareness that this has got to stop, " Roth said.

"Those 17 [people killed in Florida] don't have the freedom to speak out, so we will", said CAPA senior Christian Carter.

Since the shooting, students have been using social media and traditional media interviews to call out politicians and the NRA.
