Advocates of gun control marched across Brooklyn Bridge in New York on Saturday, in honour of the National Gun Violence Awareness Day on June 1.

Members of the 'Youth Over Guns' group carried a coffin in memory of the victims of the Parkland school shooting in February.

Omari Allen, an activist from the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence called for more street protest until legislation was brought in regulating possession of firearms.

"We will vote out this NRA supported congressman and senators, if they think we are playing they have something coming for them in November," he told the crowd.

Oscar-winning actress Susan Sarandon, renowned for her support of progressive causes, was also in attendance.

Marches have been held right across the country for the 'Wear Orange Weekend' which pushes for legislation to tackle gun violence.
