NJ Rally Against Zimmerman Verdict Draws Hundreds

 

Hundreds of people have gathered in Newark to peacefully protest the acquittal in George Zimmerman’s murder trial.

Organizers say the outdoor protest staged Sunday afternoon drew a diverse crowd unhappy with a Florida jury’s decision to clear the former neighborhood watch volunteer in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

Ignoring the sweltering heat and humidity, the marchers chanted “no justice, no peace” and Martin’s name as they made their way toward the federal courthouse.

There was a large police presence at the scene and a stretch of nearby roadway was briefly closed for the event. But officials say there were no reported problems.
