Martin’s father promised the crowd that he would not stop fighting “for my Trayvon and for your Trayvon.”

The rally came a day after thousands marched through Sanford, the central Florida town where 28-year-old George Zimmerman shot and killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in February.

 

Zimmerman has claimed self-defense and has not been arrested.

Martin was black. Zimmerman’s father is white and mother is Hispanic.

State and federal authorities are investigating.
