USA: Hundreds of Colorado students stage walkout against NRA

United States, Fort Collins, CO
February 28, 2018 at 02:37 GMT -00:00 · Published

Hundreds of pupils at Poudre High School in Fort Collins, CO, walked out of lessons in protest against lax gun legislation and the National Rifle Association (NRA) on Tuesday.

The students, who were joined by adults, chanted 'The NRA has got to go' as they marched towards the town square.

The walkout comes in response to the school shooting which claimed the lives of 17 teachers and students in Parkland, FL, and is one of many to have taken place across the US in the wake of the incident.

Many of the attack's survivors have become vocal critics of America's gun laws and the NRA, forcing US President Donald Trump to react by attempting to raise the age restrictions.

Fort Collins is 80 miles (130km) north of Columbine High School, the site of one the the US's deadliest mass shootings.

Cientos de alumnos de la escuela secundaria Poudre High School en Fort Collins, CO, abandonaron las clases en protesta contra la legislación de armas y la National Rifle Association (NRA) el martes.

Los estudiantes, y adultos, cantaban eslóganes como: "La NRA tiene que irse" mientras marchaban hacia la plaza del pueblo.

La huelga se produce en respuesta al tiroteo de la escuela que se cobró la vida de 17 maestros y estudiantes en Parkland, FL, y es una de las muchas que se han llevado a cabo en EE.UU. tras el incidente.

Muchos de los sobrevivientes del ataque se han convertido en voceros críticos de las leyes de armas de EE.UU. y de la NRA, lo que obliga al presidente estadounidense Donald Trump a reaccionar ante restricciones de edad para obtener un arma.

Fort Collins está a 80 millas (130 km) al norte de Columbine High School, sitio de uno de los tiroteos masivos más letales de Estados Unidos.
