Taking the Streets in San Jose for Trayvon Martin
by Alex Darocy (alex [at] alexdarocy.com)
Monday Jul 15th, 2013 3:57 AM
Dozens of community members gathered on July 14 to hold a vigil for justice for Trayvon Martin at San Jose City Hall. The group decided to march to the federal building and circle around the downtown to get their message out, and San Jose Police exerted pressure on marchers to move onto the sidewalk. For much of the march, individuals were chanting, "no justice, no peace, no racist police." When the group was at its largest it was decided that another demonstration for Trayvon would be held at San Jose City Hall on Sunday, July 21 at 6pm. Later, a slightly smaller group planned an additional demonstration for Tuesday, July 16 at 4:30pm, also at City Hall in San Jose. [photos coming soon]

Other march chants included: "Long Live Trayvon," "Trayvon lives," "Trayvon is never gone," "No justice, no peace, we're taking over the streets," "Long live Oscar Grant," "No justice, no peace, no racist police," "Being black is not a crime," "Trayvon is never gone," "Racist cops, racist laws, it all starts at city hall."
