Hyer's Highlights: March For Our Lives

Hundreds of thousands of protesters took to the streets across the US to call for tighter gun control as part of the #MarchForOurLives movement.

The movement arose after the 17 deaths in a school shooting in Parkland in Florida in February. The massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School was one of a long line of school shootings in the USA. It was the worst since Sandy Hook in 2012, when 26 people – mostly children – were killed. The students staged a nationwide school walk-out earlier this month, and campaigning by Parkland students gained widespread support, with survivors becoming outspoken figures, gaining millions of Twitter followers in a matter of weeks.

Interview with Conrad Duncan

Data from millions of people’s Facebook accounts was allegedly used to influence elections around the world, including the US Presidential election.

This data was collected through quizzes and connections to friends, and then used without proper consent.


These shocking revelations were exposed by Channel 4 News, The Guardian and the New York Times in a documentary aired this week. They sent undercover reporters to meet to meet executives from a British data analytics firm called Cambridge Analytica. The firm is accused of buying this data from Facebook accounts, and using it to psychologically profile potential voters to help with election campaigns.

On his Sunday radio show, Benji Hyer was joined by Conrad Duncan, a journalist student in London who has followed the story closely as it has developed and gave listeners an insight into the revelations.
