It’s Clear: A Lot of Stoneman Douglas Students Don’t Like Their New See-Through Backpacks, So They’re Using Them to Protest

“This backpack is probably worth more than my life.”

So says a tweet from Carmen Lo, one of the many Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students who took to social media after transparent backpacks were handed out to the school’s 3,300 students on Monday.

The backpacks are part of the new safety measures taking effect at the Parkland school, where 17 people were shot and killed and 17 others were wounded Feb. 14.
