Rev. Al Sharpton
A weeks and a half after a jury found his son’s shooter not guilty of second degree murder or manslaughter, Tracy Martin thanked the crowd assembled at the National Action Network’s Southeast Regional Civil Rights Revival and Conference for its continued support.
Rallies took place from coast to coast, Saturday, as people pressed for civil rights charges against George Zimmerman and for changes in the country’s self-defense laws.
The Rev. Al Sharpton will lead a national “Justice for Trayvon” day in 100 cities this weekend including Miami to press for federal civil rights charges against George Zimmerman.
The Reverend Al Sharpton is in South Florida again Tuesday urging African American voters to get out and cast their ballots in the Primary Election. He says he’s worried they won’t turn out because of crackdowns implemented this year by the state.
Another protest over the shooting death of Trayvon Martin is scheduled to take place Monday in Fort Lauderdale. Organizers say the march will begin at 5:00 p.m. at Fort Lauderdale City Hall and will end at the BSO Public Safety Building.
