9:04 pm
this long and i think you need to listen to the people all of us want change and just because you're scared of change you're not going to do anything. make change let us live let's bring your dad enjoyed what you must be incredibly proud of not just your own children but everyone absolutely i have two daughters that went to the school but all these kids are all our children we bonded together and i'm just i'm just amazed i mean had tears in my eyes and just you know i'm so so proud of them a lot of these marches a mountain before they haven't led to ordinary becoming movement so what do you do from this point almost to keep the momentum going to take i i feel our community will be a tipping point i die from what i've seen the my fellow people in parkland and what i'm seeing outside of parkland it really seems like something's going to happen this time to stevie final questions you know i guess at the end of the day this is all about the seventeen lives of a lost somebody paying tribute to them right yes yeah i mean these are these are children and hands being so we are the voices for them and we're here to stand up
9:05 pm
for them and for all the other kids i'm not. just speaking up because it's my hometown unfortunately take it in direct impact for me to see but each and every one of us needs to speak up because this is a matter of time if we don't even join thank you very much for your time so there's just a sense of the emotion here in washington d.c. and the determination to really change gun laws in this country of course this march is not the only one is going on across the world as i said to join just senate so often these marches don't really turn into movements but there is a determination here to keep the pressure on and also moving it on commonsense gun reform that so many of this new generation wants so badly and i'm sure i understand the march went past trump international hotel and that unfortunately the president is busy playing golf is there any sense though that the politicians across the country both the state and the congress. are going to change.
9:06 pm
well i think it's important to remember in the state of florida the motorist at whatever size school students already affected change this is a republican controlled house of congress they raise the minimum angel minus all right from eighteen to twenty one that was something nobody expected in a state controlled by republicans and i've certainly spoken to a lot of republicans over the last few weeks who feel people here also feel that it's time for change that this is the tipping point that oversee getting great hope banning assault rifles will be extremely long and difficult battle and i think one people here are aware of the long they're also determined to keep on pushing for no matter what many fanfan they got to get that right at the heart of that demonstration in washington d.c. betfair a bit more of the voices who have been out in those marches going through the streets dion estabrook is that and she's been talking to some of. a lot of the people who have turned out today to march at this rally are teachers who are concerned about what is happening in their schools they're concerned about possible
9:07 pm
shootings that could affect their see. tunes and potential shootings within their communities and one of the teachers that's come out today is kim fitzgerald lennon she is a teacher in virginia what's your concern as you walk into the school every day you know i'm a teacher at twenty eight years a veteran teacher and my main concern when i walk into school is educating students and i want that to remain our main concern is having kids come to school and feel safe and be safe and to learn and increasingly here in our society that our focus is on our kids' safety and of course you know i'm concerned with that but i don't want that to become our main concern and i think that we need to do something here in this country that will curtail the violence that we're seeing in our society and in our schools and that's adversely affecting all of us but particularly our children you talk about safety are you in favor of arming teachers i am not in
9:08 pm
favor of arming teachers i read an article actually recently about a rural school in pennsylvania that has rocks in their closets baskets of rocks to help to. you know fight against criminals and no not at all i don't think that that's what teachers most teachers went to school for we went to learn to teach kids and that's not what our concern should be thanks jim. a lot of these teachers on the students as well say that they're in this for the long haul and they think they can make a difference they can bring about potentially tougher gun legislation here in the u.s. and let's show you now life pitches all that demonstration going on still and washington d.c. we've been saying some of the thing is have you given the time for free to join the demonstration on the ground a singing jennifer hudson miley cyrus will coming up and say we've also been hearing that there are some very big paychecks going to the. oprah winfrey and george clooney steven spielberg will giving half a million dollars to china paying. good afternoon for.

9:36 pm
a stater about you because it gives them insights into who you are and who the customers are going to cause the biggest is google if you use android if you want around droid phone it's tracking you. where you go of use android hey it knows where you bought things and what you bought and how much you spent so it's not facebook not just facebook anyway the question is how transparent are they but the data they're using about how they're getting it and what they're doing with it that's kind of the key issue here people are looking and going ok what can be done about this what legislation has to come and i was listening in to an interview with the face with a rather the internet inventor who said it's a bit like putting toothpaste back in the chew it's possible to do but it's very messy here and much of legislation is right way forward and it's absolutely clear that we have caught on the hop very much for the two thousand and sixteen ballots by the u.s. election by the brics a vote here in the u.k. because we're still getting to grips with just how powerful the data targeting is and you know it's effective whether it's the magic that cambridge analytical has said it is another matter so we are kind of feeling our way here this is
9:37 pm
a new world legislation right thing to do maybe not so we're all going to look to people like you who know inside and out of what's going on to how we now protect ourselves what could uses be now doing to make sure we're not being exploited in the same way it's about knowing what's connecting to your facebook account and your twitter account and your google account and thinking about what are my sharing here i mean it's my facebook is quite looked down on facebook is really useful to me things like what ups of i got connected to it what's visible and who is visible to my sharing stuff publicly on my sharing stuff just the right friends to all my friends have i are loud and upset for example if you do a quiz it's probably enough that connects your facebook go and have a look and see what's connected to delete all those things like that can really help do you think people are going to start leaving facebook because of this you know i mean we're hearing the likes of a must but was making a big deal of it on twitter was actually caught out because he didn't realize he had all these different place for pages but are people going to see as much of an
9:38 pm
intrusion into being part of this huge great big social media site i think the genie is out of the bottle i mean i have friends who are neither on facebook. nor twitter but they're kind of holdouts no refuseniks i think for all of a super to have two jobs like ours where you need to connect to lots of people you need to talk to people see a lot of opinions and and information it's not just fun it's actually part of work so i don't see a lot of people going away also i suspect it's come back on facebook they need their presence is that also do you think this is a generational thing i know some young people who don't care that they've been targeted by advertising on my facebook site whereas i think my generation are more like how dare they know what i might or might not want to see on my or my page to think difference but yeah i think it is i mean you have to kind of stop and think about what deal you've done with facebook with twitter with google with all of them what's the what's the trade off because you're getting a really useful way of connecting with people i'm in touch with people as a school with forty years ago and i love that and in return i know that they're
