No to gun violence! Curb weapons sales!

On Saturday, March 24th, the kids and families of March For Our Lives took to the streets of Washington, DC – and other cities all across the U.S. and around the world, including Rome – to demand that their lives and safety become a priority and that we end gun violence and mass shootings in our schools and communities.

The week before, tens of thousands of students at more than 3,000 U.S. schools staged a walk out to mark the 1-month anniversary of the tragedy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

The "March for Our Lives" event in Washington D.C. -- and our solidarity sit-in that morning outside the U.S. Embassy in Rome – were intended to remind Congress that ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! The American people have had it! In the U.S., on average, 96 people are killed every day with guns, including 7 children, and there are nearly 13,000 gun homicides a year.


Stop gun violence now! Restrict gun sales!

The Rome event was organized by AEPC, with the participation of U.S. Citizens for Peace & Justice, while a simultaneous demonstration
was taking
place in Florence, Italy, organized by Indivisible TUScany, Democrats Abroad Tuscany, and Statunitensi contro la guerra.
