Justin Bieber has shown support for March for Our Lives and has encouraged his followers to partake and sign a petition in support of the movement.
On Saturday, he tweeted, “Help these kids and sign their petition now.” His tweet also included a link to the March for Our Lives petition, described as “an act to protect and save your children” in response to the tragedy that unfolded on February 14, claiming 17 lives at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. The petition states that elected officials should pass a law to ban the sale of assault weapons, prohibit the sale of high-capacity magazines and close loopholes in background checks that allow “dangerous people who shouldn't be allowed to purchase firearms to slip through the cracks.” It accompanies the upcoming March for Our Lives event on March 24, when protestors will take to the streets of Washington D.C. to demand stricter gun control in the United States.
Harry Styles told fans to sign the petition as well. “I just signed the @AMarch4OurLives petition, and you should too,” he tweeted. Hundreds of events around the country are being organized to take place alongside the D.C. march on March 24.
