Dylan Stableford, Senior Editor March 24, 2018
Hundreds of thousands of people are taking part in March for Our Lives demonstrations around the world on Saturday to call for an end to gun violence. The protests were sparked by a string of deadly school shootings, including the massacre in Parkland, Fla., last month. Organizers say they expect nearly a million in Washington, D.C., alone. Yahoo News is covering the events live from the nation’s Capitol and several other locations. Watch a livestream in the video player above and follow the blog below for the latest updates.
