Mumbaikars join 'March for our Lives' rally

They held signs that read, "why do your guns matter more than our lives?" and "our ballots will stop bullets".

Saturday's marches will cover more than 800 locations around the country and outside the USA, in cities including London, Paris, and Tokyo, according to the march website.

The events were organized by the student survivors of the February 14 mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, that killed 17 people.

Mass shootings at American schools and colleges have become a regular occurrence.

In Parkland, Anishka Milleret pushed a wheelchair through the grass and up-and-down the small hill locks at Pine Trail Park to make sure her children were present at the city's rally.

Eleven-year-old Naomi Wadler of Virginia took to the stage in Washington, telling the crowd she was not a "tool" of an adult's thoughts and she was at the rally to say "never again".

This is her first time back in Las Vegas since that night.

"Finally, somebody was doing something about it, except it wasn't who you'd expect - it was us", Mariah Thomas, 17, said to cheers.

She added: "I want to get to the problem before it gets to me". I feel so sad for them, but it's just something that unfortunately needs to be done in our lives today. "So my hope is that I can wake Americans up and remind them that we're the employers, these folks are not doing their job".

Organizers say numerous rallies attracted thousands in support of legislation that would raise the age at which buyers can purchase some rifles and would improve and expand background checks. In Frankfurt, a group walked down a street shouting, "no guns in our schools".

Ana Navarro, a Republican commentator and Trump critic, was also present at the event and hurled criticism at Trump for anti-LGBT policies she called "deplorable".

His teams reached the state tournament seven out of eight years, capturing a Cape Ann League title in his first season. For two of the nine seniors on the Bulldogs' roster, the drive will come from even more than just being upperclassmen.

They've also raised more than $3 million through a GoFundMe campaign.

Organizers on Saturday estimated 800,000.

"We can not move on". Many held signs with slogans including "Am I Next?"

"Politicians: either represent the people or get out".

"I don't want to have to go to school in fear and live my life in fear", said Madeline Arneson, Oconomowoc.

Among those marching next to New York's Central Park to call for tighter gun controls was pop star Paul McCartney, who said he had a personal stake in the debate. He also said, "You can hear the people in power shaking". In Bethel about 30 people joined the movement, carrying signs and walking the slushy shoulder of Chief Eddie Hoffman Highway. "The fact that my kids are having to do lockdown drills. Criminals aren't stupid. They know that will maximize the body count". The organization defines mass shootings as four or more shot or killed, not including the shooter.

"We haven't done enough to prevent these crimes and these weapons", Monahan said of Canada's gun control laws.

And in Parkland, Zayn Gregory, 13, and her 16-month-old sister, Raeviane wore matching MSD strong T-shirts, as did your father, James Gregory. "It's our price tag", Stoneman Douglas freshman Lauren Hogg said.

"They had video. they had interviews", she said. "Congress must take meaningful action to keep us safe".
