UTICA- “March for our lives” was seen throughout the world and even right here in Utica. On Saturday students of Thomas R. Proctor High School formed a march for their safety.

“At the time there weren't that many people which were organizing [marches],” said Maggie Parker, of Proctor High School. “We couldn't find one on any social media so we kind of took it in our own hands."

Students of Proctor High got hundreds of parents and students together this afternoon to march for a cause.

"We believe in controlling the guns to save these kids lives that is why we are here,” said Will Hall of Whitesboro. “We are here to support these wonderful kids."

The march started at Proctor High School and ended at Oneida Square. Once at the square, hundreds welcomed students and parents who were protesting again current gun laws. In peaceful protest 17 students laid down to symbolize the 17 students which were killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

“We want a change we demand a change,” said Jenay Pajazetovic of Proctor High.
