Day 19: No Justice, No Peace in LA

This Saturday, the National Action Network organized over 100 rallies in as many cities to protest the unconscionable inaction of the State of Florida in allowing George Zimmerman to shoot an unarmed black teenager to death and receive no censure or punishment from their judicial system. If I had to venture a guess, I’d say there were probably between 750 and 1,000 people at the rally, which was held at 9 AM in front of the Federal Courthouse in downtown Los Angeles. After a series of small speeches and prayers, a large number of those at the rally set off on a march through the streets of LA to express their discontent with the current state of affairs and their expectation that the Federal Government follow civil rights precedent by charging Zimmerman for the crimes that Florida’s obscene Stand Your Ground law erroneously absolved him of. Here are some photos from the rally:
