The Most Powerful Signs from Boston’s March for Our Lives
Protestors had messages directed toward the NRA, the Republican Party, and others.
Thousands of people participated in the student-led march from Madison Park Vocational Technical High School to Boston Common on Saturday to advocate for gun reform. The Boston March for Our was one of more than 800 “sibling” events planned around the world in response to the mass shooting in Parkland, Florida, and the renewed gun-control debate largely championed by young activists. Protestors of all ages brought signs with messages of passion, anger, and hope. Below, take a look at some of the most powerful placards:
“Hey hey! Ho ho! NRA has got to go!” 👣🗣👣🗣👣🗣👣🗣👣🗣👣🗣👣🗣 Passionate and proactive students from Mount Desert Island High School organized a bus trip down to Boston for today’s March for Our Lives to join tens of thousand to peacefully protest gun violence and contribute support to the movement pushing for politicians to reform firearm policy. These students kindly extended an invitation to the COA community. Most of our students are away for spring break but a couple of us arrived at the high school at 4:30 this morning to board the bus and start the 5-hour drive to Boston. Although anger and sadness brought us here, we danced to music, chanted powerful phrases together, waved meme-inspired signs, and even hugged each other as we walked in solidarity through this old city.
