Facebook

Demonstrators  chant “we want arrests” during Wednesday night’s Million Hoodie march in Manhattan’s Union Square.

Organizer of the March, Daniel Maree says the march was is in protest to ”the absurdity of Trayvon [Martin's] murder.”

A few hundred people are marching in New York City tonight (3/21) in memory of a black teenager shot to death by a Hispanic neighborhood watch captain in Florida.

Trayvon, the unarmed teenager who was shot on his way to buy some skittles to eat while watching the NCAA tournament, was shot to death by self proclaimed “neighborhood watch guard, George Zimmerman in Florida. Zimmerman has claimed he shot ”the suspicious black man in a hoodie” in self defense, but 911 calls and witnesses have thrown that into question. Police in Florida have failed to investigate the murder and no arrests have been made.

The U.S. Department of Justice has opened a civil rights probe into the shooting.

The march also coincides with International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, which organizers of the march believe was the motivation behind the shooting.

Trayvon’s mothers is honored by the march. “It means a lot to me and my family knowing that people across the country, across the world, are coming together to get justice for Trayvon,” Tracy Martin told the Associated Press.
