Oprah Winfrey is following the example of George and Amal Clooney and donates also a half million dollars (about 405.000 euros) to March For Our Lives, the American protest for stricter arms legislation.
“George and Amal, I completely with you agree. So I would like to join our forces and also a 500.00 dollar donation to the March For Our Lives”, writes Oprah on Twitter. “These inspiring young people remind me of the Freedom Riders of the sixties who also said that it was enough and our voices will be heard.”
The March For Our Lives is a protest march and action that is started by the survivors of the shooting in Florida last Wednesday, where fourteen students and three staff members of a school were killed. The march will take place on 24 march. George and Amal have announced also to walk “in the name of their children.” Also other celebrity’s showed already know behind the protest march.
