100 + NATIONWIDE PROTESTS

News

Thousands of concerned citizens, community activists and celebrities stood beside Trayvon Martin’s photo in over 100 nationwide demonstrations yesterday demanding justice for the slain teen.

Music moguls, civic leaders and concerned citizens were among the protesters calling for a federal civil-rights probe of George Zimmerman, who was found not guilty of murder charges this month.

On February 2012 Trayvon was shot dead while walking through the gated Florida community where his father was living.

The case has sparked national outrage over racial profiling and finally drew an emotional response Friday from President Obama saying, “Travvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago"
