Protesters at the “March for Our Lives” rally for gun control in Washington, D.C., left their signs outside Trump Hotel after they marched.

The Saturday rally was organized by student survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting last month that left 17 people dead.

It featured a number of performances by stars such as Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ariana Grande and Miley Cyrus.
