Dunblane Families Back #MarchForOurLives Campaign

From BBC Report:

Victims Of The Dunblane Shooting - Their families back #MarchForOurLives
Relatives of the Dunblane shooting victims joined a demonstration outside the US consulate in Edinburgh backing calls for tougher gun controls.
 
The event was one of more than 800 being staged around the world to show solidarity with the March For Our Lives movement in Washington DC.
 
It was set up after a gunman killed 17 students and teachers at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas school in Florida. Several hundred people also gathered outside the US embassy in London.

Speakers at the Edinburgh event included the family of Dunblane victim Emma Crozier. Jack Crozier and his sister Ellie said they wanted to show change can happen and encourage the Parklands students in their campaign.  They read a letter of support to those affected by the Parkland tragedy.
 
Earlier this month, survivors and relatives of the Dunblane tragedy, in which 16 children and a teacher were shot dead by Thomas Hamilton, sent a message of support to students affected by the Parkland school shooting . A letter was sent to Marjory Stoneman Douglas School on the 22nd anniversary of the Dunblane murders. Ten family members of victims and survivors also recorded a video message entitled Dunblane Stands With Parkland.
