Hundreds of thousands of people gathered in cities across the country—and around the world—to protest against gun violence on Saturday. Organizers of the event say around half a million people attended in Washington, D.C. alone. Yet photos from the rallies around the world show that Washington was hardly alone in gathering large crowds of people who were inspired by the student survivors of the school shooting in Parkland, Florida that killed 17 people.
