8 most powerful moments from March for Our Lives around the country

"And I saved Nicholas for the end, because today is Nicholas' birthday", Kasky said over loudspeakers to thousands gathered on Pennsylvania Avenue.

She told her mother that for her birthday, she wanted to go to Washington to attend March for Our Lives, the student-led demand for action against gun violence held Saturday in localities throughout the world. Organizers moved up and down the packed crowd urging young people to register to vote. They pleaded with the adults - the lawmakers - to take care of children.

Aborn says the Parkland students are resilient and have grit, noting that the group has all the elements of a successful movement.

"You want to shoot an AR-15, then join the military", Corey White Sr. of Middletown told his fellow marchers at the skate park.

Students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School were also present in New York City. Our kids are much more important than guns. Fuentes said he was shot in front of her.

Signs carried by protestors lambasted lawmakers who oppose tougher laws and the National Rifle Association (NRA), the powerful United States gun lobby.

"My grandfather had a dream that his four little children would not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character", 9-year-old Yolanda Renee King said.

Mayor Bill de Blasio said 175,000 people took part at the NY rally, tweeting: "These students WILL change America".

In Albany, New York, Kaelyn, 17, said she is marching "because I realize that I have a voice and that I have the power to make a change in this country".

Following this, massive protests were held by students across the USA to pressure the Trump administration for tougher gun measures.

The price tag said $1.05.

Students and staff have to wear IDs while on school grounds.

But the most riveting appearances were by the Stoneman Douglas students.

Parkland survivor Emma Gonzalez has become known for firing up crowds with her words.

Gonzalez began her speech by calling the names of each of the victims and things they would never do again.

Then she continued with her speech, saying: "Our mission is simple, and our visions are unbeatable". Tears flowed as she stood silent.

"Six minutes and about 20 seconds", she said.

Moreover, around 200-250 cameras will be installed to live-stream the classes so that the parents can watch their children. The study will be a part of a 26-point programme to control pollution in Delhi.

Naomi Wadler took the stage with one message: Black females - who are killed in disproportionate numbers - have been left out of the gun violence conversation.

"Enough is enough", she said. "But I think maybe after this something will be done about it".

An NRATV host levied a fresh set of attacks against the Parkland, Florida shooting survivors ahead of Saturday's March for Our Lives protest.

Kasky saved one name for last-Nicholas Dworet. Parkland students should have been helping him celebrate his 18th birthday Saturday.

Her friend, Bella Holliday, agreed.

'We have to do all this lockdown drills [at school] because people have guns, ' she said.

People of all ages were out and about at the protests.

Jennifer Hudson closed out the march by singing a rousing gospel rendition of Bob Dylan's "The Times They Are A-Changin'".

McCartney was one of several celebrities who performed or spoke at the rallies. Aaron Feis would never call Keira, Miss Sunshine.

"You see that, politicians?"

In Washington, rallygoers also saw the West family - Kanye, Kim and North - and the Clooneys - Amal and George - among the crowd.

There were also rallies in Brisbane, Australia; Copenhagen, Denmark; Madrid; Paris and Rome.

- Frank Thorp V (@frankthorp) March 24, 2018 " You can't fix stupid".

At some march sites, counterprotesters appealed for others to respect for the Second Amendment.

After helping to organize the walkout at their school earlier this month, Perles and her friend Ryan Dowling, 17, of Northport, said they had to do more.

"This generation of young people coming up are our next voters", said Williams, a vice president of the Middletown school board.
