A whole host of celebrities are supporting the March For Our Lives rally for imposing stricter gun laws including Justin Timberlake, Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, Jennifer Hudson, Cher, Sir Paul McCartney, Charlize Theron, George Clooney, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.
As people from all over the world gathered for the rally organised by the students of the Florida high school massacre, celebrities have also come together to express their support for the worldwide movement.
Kardashian tweeted, “So ready to March today! Landed in DC w North & Kanye. We stand in solidarity with the survivors of gun violence & students who are calling for action on common sense gun safety laws at #MarchForOurLives around the country.”
While the day was focused on the youth with many poignant accounts from child survivors who lost their friends, Sir Paul McCartney stood in solidarity with marchers in New York’s Central Park and referred to John Lennon’s fatal shooting outside his apartment building in 1980. “One of my best friends was killed by gun violence right around here, so it’s important to me not just to march today but to take action tomorrow and to have these people to have their voices heard.”
The movement is gaining traction around the world with 800 separate marches planned. Trump remained silent as the marches occurred in the US capital, Washington DC, on March 24.
