Numerous marches took place across the United States today, all led by the survivors of February's school shooting in Florida.

March For Our Lives rallies were held in many cities around the country, none larger than the estimated half a million who attended the one in Washington, DC.

George and Amal Clooney, who donated $500,000 to the event, marched alongside the demonstrators calling for stricter gun control.

Russian Federation reportedly helped Venezuela launch its petro cryptocurrency to skirt U.S. sanctions
Trump and other critics have claimed the Petro , backed by Venezuela's oil reserves - the largest in the world - is unreliable. Another U.S. official cited United Nations data showing more than 1.5 million Venezuelans have been displaced by the crisis.

When asked if change could happen at the legislative level, McCartney, who wore a shirt that said "We Can End Gun Violence", told Carroll, "I'm like everyone, I don't know".

NYC's March for Our Lives was also taking place near the Strawberry Fields memorial in Central Park dedicated to Lennon, which was created by his widow Yoko Ono and landscape architect Bruce Kelly. Speaking to CNN he explained that having lost a good friend of his to gun violence, it was a very important issue to him.

Musician and former Beatles member Sir Paul McCartney joined tens of thousands of participants for New York City's March for Our Lives on Saturday. She acknowledged that her position has cost her supporters, but she said she wants to do her part to "keep our children alive".
