Celebs Support March For Our Lives Protest

Many of our favourite celebrities went on streets on Saturday and supported March For Our Lives protest.

Celebs Support the Protest

The likes of Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, George and Amal Clooney, Lady Gaga and many more joined the thousands of students and other people at the March For Our Lives Protest to demand an end to gun violence in the state.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West brought their oldest, 4-year-old North West to the Washington D.C. march where Cher and Jennifer Hudson also showed their support.  Charlie Puth and Olivia Wilde spoke and Rita Ora performed at the Los Angeles event.

Kim Kardashian captured many inspiring speeches and shared on social media the next day to portray the message and commenting she hopes her daughter remembers this experience forever. Both Kim and Kanye had spoken against gun violence on various occasions in recent years just like many other celebs but will this be enough to make a change?

The protest was held in order to stop school shootings and other massacres. Teens organized the rallies after the latest mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida on 14 February when 17 students and staff members had lost their lives.

March For Our Lives

March For Our Lives Protest was held on 24 March at more than 800 locations around the world, including hundreds of places in the US and also London, Sydney, Tokyo, and Mumbai.

Hundreds of thousands of students joined these pro-gun rallies in one of the largest expressions of popular opposition in the modern era. The students wore signs saying “No more silence”, “We are the change”, “Change gun laws or change the Congress”, “Enough is Enough” and similar.

The protest in Washington was one of the biggest in the capital since the Vietnam era and impassioned protesters swelled along Pennsylvania Avenue. They wanted their voice to be heard and created a diverse and inclusive group of speakers in order to eliminate gun violence from society. Among the survived victims and family members of the victims, one of the speakers was Yolanda Renee King, 9-year-old granddaughter of late Martin Luther King.

“My grandfather had a dream that his four little children will not be judged by the colour of their skin, but by the content of their character,” she said and then added “I have a dream that enough is enough. And that this should be a gun-free world—period.”

The White House issued a statement congratulating many courageous Americans for exercising their First Amendment rights and issued a bill for some background check and school safety measures.
