Trayvon Martin’s parents joined Rev. Al Sharpton and NAN for 100 city ‘Justice for Trayvon’ vigils

Father of Trayvon Martin speaks to a member of the media at a rally for his son in Miami

Trayvon Martin‘s father, Tracy Martin, joined the National Action Network’s southeast regional chairman and Florida chapter at the Miami “100-city Justice for Trayvon” vigil.

Martin was joined by a crowd of hundreds singing the protest song “We Shall Overcome.” He demanded that George Zimmerman, acquitted of second-degree murder and manslaughter exactly a week ago, should face civil charges. Martin told about 300 supporters of his son’s cause that, after the acquittal, he has “come to realize George Zimmerman wasn’t on trial – Trayvon was on trial.”
