Protesters gathered in Boston on Saturday for March For Our Lives, a student-led demonstration against gun violence.

The march was among hundreds of demonstrations held across the U.S. in the wake of February's school shooting in Parkland, Florida that killed 17 people.

Here are images from the protest in Boston:
