It shook the world with passion and outrage. At least 2 million people marched on Saturday in more than 800 March for Our Lives protests across the country and the world—with 800,000 attending in Washington, D.C., alone, making it the largest single-day protest in the history of the nation’s capital—from Boston to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, with solidarity events in Edinburgh, Geneva, Sydney, Tokyo, and London.
Here are some other major stats:
- 3.3 million: Tweets sent with the #MarchForOurLives hashtag
- 387: U.S. congressional districts across the country that saw marches
- 104: solidarity marches outside the U.S.
- 6 minutes, 20 seconds: length of Parkland survivor Emma Gonzales’s moment of silence to mark the duration of the gunman’s rampage.
Here are some of the most amazing photos of the march:
