No matter how much the GOP, the NRA and Trump attempt to drown out with shrill shreaks the young people carrying out these protests, nor how much they try to divert attention elsewhere with SPIN, these students are going to keep escalating the gun-violence issue in America, including during the lead-up to this year's mid-term elections, until it completely & totally buries America's national terrorist organisation (the NRA), the GOP and Trump in a rising tide of righteous fury. Just like it was during the Vietnam War when young people started a movement which eventually overwhelmed the U.S. government and forced them out of their warmongering and war crimes activities in Vietnam.

Here is one final photograph taken last Wednesday, 14th March, showing pairs of shoes being arranged outside the U.S. Capitol in Washington D.C., one pair for every child who has been a victim of gun violence in the U.S.A. over the past five years and three months....




Gizem Kara Batterman gathers with others to arrange about 7,000 pairs of shoes outside the U.S. Capitol. The display, “Monument for Our Kids”, symbolizes the number of children who have been victims of gun violence since the December 14th, 2012, school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut. — Photograph: Matt McClain/The Washington Post.
