Parkland, Fla., shooting survivor David Hogg is leading a “die-in” protest at two popular Parkland-area supermarkets on Friday to protest the chain’s financial support for a pro-gun rights gubernatorial candidate.
Hogg — a former student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, where 17 people were killed in a February shooting — tweeted that the 12-minute protest will start at 4 p.m. and take place inside two Publix stores.
“Just go [and] lie down starting at 4,” Hogg tweeted. “Feel free to die in with us at many other @Publix as possible.”
TheHill.com additionally reported:
The “die-in” protest organized by Parkland, Fla., students quickly turned into a clash against Trump supporters on Friday.
The article goes on to state the following:
“Hey, hey NRA, how many kids have you killed today?” the students said in one video captured by a local news station.
Trump supporters, some wearing apparel featuring President Trump‘s “Make America Great Again” slogan, surrounded the students and chanted the president’s name in return.
