MADISON (WKOW) -- Students throughout southern Wisconsin and much of the nation walked out of class Wednesday to demand an end to gun violence in schools.

The National Walkout Day marches coincided with the one-month anniversary of the mass school shooting at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida that left 17 dead.

In Madison, a large walkout that began at Madison East High School moved up East Washington to the Capitol. A group from Madison's Hamilton Middle School also walked out.

Similar events were held from Beloit, to Edgerton and Spring Green.
