Just steps away from the courthouse where a jury decided George Zimmerman’s fate, demonstrators vowed that their fight wasn’t over.
“Nationwide protest to demand justice,” they chanted after the jury’s not guilty verdict in Sanford, Florida, cleared Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.
It wasn’t long before some appeared to be heeding their call.
Protesters rallied in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Denver, Baltimore, Detroit, New York and other cities.
“I came here today to stand in solidarity with Trayvon Martin’s family, and everyone else searching for justice for him, and wanting to bring Zimmerman to justice,” said Kellie Knight. She spoke at a protest at Union Square in New York City.
“If it can happen to her son, it can happen to anybody’s son or daughter,” she said.
Later, a crowd converged on Times Square, chanting: “This is what democracy looks like.”
