One, Liam Kiernan, 15, said: “I’m just mad there’s no action by our government.
“They are not only letting us down, they are letting future generations down too.
“No longer are we going to sit idly by and allow ourselves to become victims of weak politicians. Their thoughts and prayers mean nothing no more. It is action and reform we need.” More news at Mirror
