Paul McCartney attends March for Our Lives in honour of John Lennon

Paul McCartney attended the March for Our Lives sister protest in New York, to demand an end to gun violence.

Over the weekend lots of rallies took place across the United States.

In a brief interview with CNN at the rally, McCartney said, "One of my best friends was killed in gun violence right around here, so it's important to me," referring to the murder of John Lennon in 1980.

McCartney, wearing a shirt that said 'We Can End Gun Violence,' also told CNN that while he didn't know whether the rallies or anything would ultimately end gun violence, "This is what we can do, so I'm here to do it."

McCartney added that he attended the New York march "just to support the people."

He was one of many celebrities that attended rallies of the weekend.
