Podcast: The March for Our Lives Movement, 2018

This time the Parkland students might make a difference.

The killing of 17 students at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, has ignited a wave of protest across the country, sparked by the students from that Florida school. Previous efforts to pressure legislators to change our gun laws has gone nowhere, but this time things may turn out differently.

Whether or not they are ultimately successful will depend on how well they can sustain the movement. But right now the students seem to be on the right path, as evidenced by the events of the weekend of March 24. Estimates are 800,000 attended the rally in D.C., and it wasn’t just kids — in fact, it’s estimated that only about 10 percent of the participants were under 18. The average age in the crowd was just under 49 years old. And it wasn’t just in D.C. — there were about 800 March for Our Lives events all around the world with well over 2,000,ooo participants. Here’s a sampling of the crowds in just a few cities:

Our Podcast hosts, Bill Wood and Peter Goldsmith, covered the event and interviewed some of the participants. They share their thoughts on the March for our Lives movement and it’s goals.
