"Million Hoodie March" Across the US

US-IMC Roundup, 29.03.2012

Numerous marches, many of them numbering in the thousands, have sprung up over the country to demand justice for Trayvon Martin. United with the name "The Million Hoodie March," marchers protested the fact that the man who shot the 17-year-old has yet to be charged with a crime under the protection of Florida's "Stand Your Ground" law. The hoodies were a reference to Trayvon Martin's clothes when we was killed as well as Geraldo Rivera's comment that "the hoodie is as much responsible for Trayvon Martin's death as George Zimmerman was."

On February 26th, Trayvon Martin was shot dead by self-styled vigilante George Zimmerman in Sandford, Florida. Sanford police did not arrest Zimmerman for killing the unarmed teenager, nor even take physical evidence such as Zimmerman's clothing or the handgun he used that night.
