Justin Bieber has pledged to help survivors of the Parkland, Florida, high school shooting in their campaign to toughen America’s gun laws.
A mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on 14 February left 17 students dead, prompting survivors to demand politicians change the nation’s gun laws to prevent future incidents.
The survivors, led by student Cameron Kasky, have asked people across the country to protest with them on 24 March, in a March For Our Lives demonstration demanding leaders take action to “end this epidemic of mass school shootings”.
Justin revealed on Twitter that he had reached out to Cameron to offer his support, writing, “Cameron good talking to you last night. All of your bravery is amazing. I stand with you guys. #march24 #marchforourlives.”
The high school pupil turned activist responded to the Sorry singer by writing, “Thanks man. Will stay in touch”
The 23-year-old pop star’s manager Scooter Braun, who last year, helped another of his clients Ariana Grande stage a charity concert for the victims of a terrorist attack on her concert in Manchester, England, also offered his support.
“Cameron we heard your call,” he tweeted. “On March 24, we march. If the kids can do it so can the adults. This isn’t about citizens…80 percent of this nation wants gun control. This (is) about congress honoring its citizens and its KIDS! March 24 we march!!”
Other stars also pledging their support for the students’ campaign, include; Star Wars actor Mark Hamill, Amy Schumer and Julianne Moore.
Both criticized politicians for failing to tighten gun laws after a spate of mass shootings in recent years, with Hamill writing on Twitter that the children leading protests were “acting like leaders” while President Donald Trump “acts like a child”.
The President and politicians from his Republican party have resisted calls to introduce measures to restrict access to guns and ammunition despite the U.S. suffering its deadliest mass shooting in its history in Las Vegas, Nevada, last October, which left 58 people dead and 851 injured. Other stars to tweet support for March’s anti-gun rally include Paramore’s Hayley Williams, actress Alyssa Milano and Josh Gad.
