Mast Academy students protest for gun control

A week after a school shooting left 17 people dead in Parkland, Mast Academy students in Key Biscayne walked out of their classrooms to protest for gun control. 

After walking out, students demonstrated their support for the "Never Again" movement that survivors at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School started. 

They staged the demonstration to show solidarity with the survivors who traveled to Tallahassee to lobby the Florida House Representatives, a day after 71 law makers halted a bill that would ban assault rifles from making it to the Florida House floor. 

The young survivors are also organizing a nationwide march to protest the lack of gun control that students believe allowed Cruz to get a hold of the rifle that he used to kill last week. 

Here are some of the Instagram posts:
