Amal and George Clooney at March for Our Lives in Washington DC. 24.03.2018

Amal and George Clooney were showing their support for gun safety at the March for Our Lives event in Washington held over the weekend.

Hundreds of thousands of people were taking part in marches across America, and cities all over the world, to call for tighter laws on gun control in the wake of the Parkland school shooting in Florida, which tragically claimed the lives of 17 pupils.

Back in February, George and human rights lawyer Amal donated $500,000 (£350,000) in the name of their nine-month-old twins Ella and Alexander for the march after the shooting at the Majory Stoneman Douglas High School.

The Washington DC march was supporting the survivors of the fatal shooting.

Clooney also wrote a letter to the students of school who had requested an interview with the actor and his wife for their Parkland high school newspaper.

It was published in The Guardian, where student journalists from the Eagle Eye – the award-winning newspaper at Marjory Stoneman Douglas – were guest editing the newspapers’ coverage of March for Our Lives.

“Congratulations on the incredible work you and all of your fellow students are doing to make the country a safer place,” he began in the letter.

“Amal and I are 100% behind you and will be marching in DC on the 24th, but we both feel very strongly that this is your march. Your moment,” he continued.

The actor explained that he was turning down their interview request because it was more effective and powerful to hear young people speaking out and “taking it to the adults”.

“Young people are taking it to the adults and that has been your most effective tool. The fact that no adults will speak on the stage in DC is a powerful message to the world that if we can’t do something about gun violence then you will,” he wrote.

He concluded by sharing his “gratitude” to the students, and added that they were making him “proud of his country again”.

Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West flew to Washington with their daughter North to show their support at the rally.

Paul McCartney, Miley Cyrus, Kendall Jenner, Ariana Grande and Amy Schumer were also seen supporting the event.

  1. Great to see them at the march..there is a photo in the a Vanity Fair article that shows a big photo of the crowd and you can see George & Amal. You also see his parents…Nina & Nick, sister Ada and Grant & Lysa Heslov. So he did march with family & friends, but no twins…which is good.

  2. They don’t go anywhere without the cameras around, especially during a political event. She definitely loves the camera. I think it makes her feel like a “royal” :- )))))
    Love the cozy pictures with Pelosy ( I guess everybody is taking advantage of the march for political ambitions).
    Good job identifying the woolly hat. It looked like a $20 hat to me, but silly me, it probably costs my week salary hahaha of course it had to be a high level “brand” hat ha
    Also definitely there is no “baby” leftover fat anywhere haha. Most women that were pregnant can say how hard it is. She is flat and skinny model type :- ))))) great accomplishment.

  4. And Nancy Pelosi is in the pictures, WHY? And Katie Couric and husband are in the pictures, WHY? Suck ups, instead of thinking about the true reason they are there—For the Students. They are not there to pow wow with the Clooney’s. It’s not about “A who’s who” at this event (Pelosi, Couric)!
