Hundreds of Newport High School students joined the nationwide protests today

Hundreds of Newport High School students joined the nationwide protests today.

They walked out of their classrooms at 10 am for 17 minutes to honor and remember the  Parkland, Florida students.

17 young lives were lost. 17 lives were wasted on February 14th, one month ago today. Students had a microphone to speak to share their thoughts in tribute with each other.

Thank you so much, to the Lincoln County School Administration’s support in making this a sacred and safe event for our children! The pain is unbearable; we must focus and protest the inaction on guns. Columbine was almost 20 years ago and it goes on.  Enough is enough!  #neveragain

March for Our Lives – Sat. Mar. 24th – Newport City Hall

Hi everybody! On Sat. March 24th, we will gather about 11:45 am at City Hall and march at noon. Our route will be to cross Hwy 101 at Angle Street with the blinking light. Stay on the sidewalk, cross only with the lights, and use the crosswalk. We will march as far as the bridge. You may want to carpool and leave your car anywhere before the bridge or the state park at the bridge. Bring your own sign.

This is a national march initiated by the kids who survived the mass murder at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, on February 14, 2018. They are going to march on Washington DC 3/24/2018. There are over 500 marches in other cities. Please forward this to all your friends on any/all social media. Make posters! Take them to stores and post. Please help share the event. Thank you! Let’s do this!
