More Fairbanks students stage walkout over gun violence
FAIRBANKS—About 40 Tanana Middle School students walked out of school shortly before quitting time Wednesday, adding their voices to the chorus of schoolchildren speaking out on the issue of gun violence.
They gathered in front of the school's main entrance as parents were lining up in their cars and trucks, ready to pick up students at the end of the school day.
At first, the students milled about, talking. Some had written on posterboards calling for an end to gun violence. They also held a few moments of silence.
