There were two local demonstrations this weekend protesting as a result of the school shootings that have taken place across the country. Attendees report the Manistee March for Our Lives had a small but vocal group. Kathy Wiejaczka, who is running for 101st Seat in the Michigan House, was in attendance and spoke to the group. The candidate opposing Rep Curt VanderWall for the Senate seat, Mike Taillard, also spoke in Manistee. In Ludington approximately 70 people gathered in front of the courthouse with signs, garnering both waves and rude gestures. The student led movement had a lack of youth participation, with many questioning why. Some cited spring break for lack of students, others questioned parental support.
