This weekend, activists took to the streets all over America to call for immediate and effective gun-control legislation, in the wake of the Valentines Day shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, in which seventeen students and teachers were killed.
Celebrities including Paul McCartney and Patti Smith joined the New York City march, while others such as George Clooney, Jimmy Fallon, Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, Miley Cyrus, and Demi Lovato turned out in for marches nationwide. One of the most exciting elements of mass peaceful protests such as the Women’s March and March for Our Lives is often the brilliant and creative signs carried by marchers. Inspired by Teen Vogue’s article ‘”Harry Potter” Signs Were Everywhere at the March for Our Lives‘, we’ve put together a list of some of the best literary signs (including several Potter ones, of course) spotted at various Marches for Our Lives this weekend.
