The roar of Brooklyn students could be heard echoing in Downtown Brooklyn this morning as middle and high school students began gathering to participate in the National School Walkout.
Intended as a 17-minute protest across the country to commemorate the 17 students killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., last month and demand gun control measures, the Brooklyn protest was still going strong after more than an hour.
On the steps of Brooklyn Borough Hall, students and local politicians observed a minute of silence before the students resumed waving their signs with slogans like “enough” and “pull the trigger on gun control.”
