Al Sharpton plans George Zimmerman protests

The Rev. Al Sharpton is calling for a “Justice for Trayvon National Day of Action” on Saturday and say demonstrations are planned in more than 100 cities nationwide.

Saying there would not have been a trial in Florida without pressure from activists, Sharpton was confident that continued pressure would result in a federal civil rights case.

“When they’re telling you today, ‘I don’t know if they’re going to get a civil rights trial:’ We will. And we will get a civil trial,” Sharpton said on the “Tom Joyner Morning Show” on Monday morning. “What we’ve watched the last several weeks was not the system correcting itself, it was the people correcting the system. Now we’ve got to finish the job.”

National Action Network is organizing the protests at federal court buildings to press the Justice Department to bring a civil rights case against George Zimmerman, who was found not guilty in the death of teenager Trayvon Martin by a Florida jury on Saturday.

Sharpton said his National Action Network intends to keep the pressure on until a civil rights case is brought, insisting the protests will show the national anger over the verdict is not a “two- or three-day” thing.

“It’s not over. And we are going to make sure it’s not over, that’s why we’re calling people to … organize in your city. I don’t care if it’s 20 people, we want to show the nation that over 100 cities a week later is still demanding justice. We’re not having a fit, we’re having a movement,” Sharpton said.

  1. Divide and conquer! They have successfully done it with this media frenzy circus. Since the verdict this has launched a campaign too from the Gun Control activists, but to counter that the Gun Pro people run their “Guns Save Lives” slogan using this case as an example. It is just endless madness to this whole thing.

    This country is now divided more than ever. We are divided by race, political affiliation, religion, beliefs, entertainment, sports, and anything else that is media related.

    Instead of protesting one man that got off on the system, why don’t you tell EVERYONE in the country, everyone who is fed up with all the bullshit in this country to stand up and take a stand against the government. Fight the Power instead of side stepping around it and taking everything out on just one guy that got off. They act like it’s something new, but people have been getting off on murders for many generations, including our own government that has blood all over their hands and still won’t answer for it.

    No one is calling for the people to become united, no one is calling for everyone to come together as one “as the people” and take this country back. Look at Egypt and then look at America, yeah….that’s a big difference.

  2. Geez, old Al looks like he may have AIDS, someone should give him some more drugs!

    • skinny dude eh?

    • hi all…hopefully he has cancer and is dying. The man is nothing but a race-baiting, lying pos of no use to the earth.

      the man has used everyone and everything to live a life that could have supported 1000’s of good people.

      I hope that the end is painful and violent.

      I’ll get up in the morning, harvest fresh produce in my garden and share it with several othersl…I’ll feel no pain in the end.

      the truth is often ugly.
