SNAPSHOT: Red Hook High School students join Columbine anniversary walkout

Central students walked out of school at 10 a.m. Friday to push for gun control

Hundreds of students gathered at a high school in Schuylkill County Friday morning to mark the anniversary of the Columbine school shooting.

The latest protests are planned for Friday, the 19th anniversary of the Columbine High School shooting that left 13 people dead in Littleton, Colorado.

Students have begun leaving class to protest gun violence and honor shooting victims. A large number of state troopers were also on hand.

Bluhm said students in the walkout had various opinions about gun control and school safety, but everyone wanted to raise awareness about gun violence and will continue to make their voices heard.

The National School Walkout was founded by four high school students in CT and takes place on April 20, the anniversary of the Columbine High School shooting.

The students protested in solidarity, inspired by the activism of the Parkland, Florida school shooting survivors.

The latest wave of school walkouts has sparked large demonstrations against gun violence in several cities.

∫ Northville Central School District had a half day on Friday and none of the students participated in the walkout.

Emmaus High School held programs inside but students did not walk out.

"New Mexico is one of the highest for gun violence, and I think this is something that has been in our state for a very long time", she said.

LAUSD officials say the principal reversed himself, and sent a recorded message to parents Thursday night would not be punished for participating in the walkout.

At the walkout, students with opposing points of view were also in attendance. "My friends are teachers at Columbine High School, my sister was at Columbine High School".

Reis and other students said they were told there will be repercussions for standing at the flagpole and for speaking to KFDX about the movement.

Briana Farella, 17, says she plans to register.
