Shoreline was the scene of two small marches on Saturday in support of March For Our Lives. Most participants went to the big march in Seattle, but some preferred staying closer to home.

The first march was at 11am. It was organized by a Shorewood student, but most of the participants were adults. Moms with little ones (and dogs) in strollers, people with mobility issues, members of Mom Demand Action, and other citizens participated.

At 4pm, local Democrats gathered on the Interurban Trail just north of N 175th. They had been in their annual caucus all day and unable to join either the earlier gathering or the big march in Seattle.

They listened to remarks from several speakers, including state Sen. Maralyn Chase, Deputy Shoreline Mayor Jesse Salomon, and a man who talked about growing up in Detroit.

The announced counter protest from the 32nd District Republicans did not materialize. According to their Facebook page,

UPDATE: After meeting last night we decided to leave these misguided socialists alone in their hysteria. Instead we will meet at the Starbucks at 220th and Aurora in Edmonds @10am, and from there will take first time AR 15 buyers on a field trip to help them select/purchase firearms!  
Others will go out from there to canvass precincts.
