Students hold protest at MDI High School

BAR HARBOR - Students at Mount Desert Island High School held a silent protest on Thursday.

Participants say they feel our leaders are not doing enough to keep people safe and want action.

Parents and others also joined them for a second protest after school and demanded changes to gun laws and saying Congress should be on lock-down until solutions are found.
