Mumbai Citizens carried out a rally in support of March for out lives. which has been organized by The Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, for stricter gun control law in United States. Thousands of people from United States, Britain, Sydney and Tokyo, among other nations, marched in support of gun control. On Feburary 14, 2018, a former student named Nikolas Cruz, committed mass shooting in the school, killing seventeen students, while wounding seventeen others. The startling incident is considered one of the most horrific mass shooting in the world. He has confessed and been charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder and 17 attempted murder.
People gathered outside the US Consulate in Bandra Kurla Complex, and marched for the safety of Indian students who are studying in America, and their families. March for our lives movement has been supported by many people outside America, because of the shocking, multiple incidents of shootings that have occurred in the country, as the laws pertaining to gun control aren’t strict at all, which is why people can buy and assault others like Nikolas.
Not only common people, but celebrities like Miley Cyrus, Ariana Grande, Demi Lavato and many others attended the rallies, while George Clooney, Oprah donated for the movement. Many students also gave speeches about gun violence and how it needs to be curbed.
