"The Guardian has “invited student journalists from the Eagle Eye

, the award-winning newspaper at Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school, to serve as our guest editors for the next 48 hours and oversee the Guardian’s coverage of March for Our Lives, the massive student-led protest unfolding in Washington and across America. We’re sending 11 students to the nation’s capital as Guardian correspondents, contributing to our live coverage all day on Saturday."  I’d really encourage everyone to look at their coverage of this event."

 

This article is by the editorial staff of the student newspaper and lists out their demands on gun control.  It is excellent.

This 2nd article deals with the bombing suspect in Austin and why he hasn’t been labeled a terrorist and takes aim at race and religious privilege.

The New York times has a really good opinion piece about how the corporations and wealthy hide their wealth and what can be done about it.   It explains in a simple manner how it works and also offers a fix.  Let's be sure to write our representatives around the republican tax proposals and demand that this off shore issue gets fixed in any tax proposal passed.
