Fri Jul 19 2013 (Updated 08/21/13) Nationwide Call to End Racial Profiling, Prosecute Zimmerman for Civil Rights Violations
Trayvon Martin Solidarity Demos Sweep Bay Area Following the acquittal of Trayvon Martin's killer, George Zimmerman, on July 13, hundreds took to the streets in Napa, Oakland, Sacramento, San Francsisco, San Jose, and Santa Cruz. At rallies, candle light vigils, and marches, community members have called for justice for Trayvon and an end to the racial profiling and police abuses that occur on a day-to-day basis across the country.

After the verdict was handed down, emergency protests were organized in San Francisco and Oakland, bringing out hundreds for rallies and marches. Over the course of the week, protests heated up in Oakland where demonstrators blocked intersections and freeways, and building windows were smashed throughout downtown.

Solidarity vigils in San Jose and Santa Cruz were organized by university student groups, and Al Sharpton's National Action Network organized actions in over 130 cities across the country on July 20 to demand that the U.S. Department of Justice prosecute George Zimmerman for violating Trayvon Martin's civil rights.
