Thousands of gun control advocates gathered in Cleveland on Saturday for what was called The March for Our Lives. It was one of hundreds of marches held nationwide in response to last month’s deadly high school shooting in Parkland, Florida.

Saturday’s march drew thousands to Public Square for the student-led protest against gun violence. One of the organizers was Solon High School senior Pranav Iyer.

“The Parkland shooting was really a call to action," Iyer said.

Cleveland is working with several groups to create permanent replacements for some temporary elements in Public Square, including a series of safety measures. The original concrete Jersey barriers were placed in the square after it reopened to bus traffic -- which heightened concerns about terrorist attacks involving people plowing vehicles into the space.

Nora Romanoff is the senior project manager of LAND Studio, who is working on the project.
