Organizers say there will be a "Justice for Trayvon" rally
in Dallas this Saturday, part of a nationwide outcry by some after a not guilty
verdict in the trial of George Zimmerman.
There have been small rallies nearly daily in North Texas
since last Saturday's verdict, but Saturday's rally in Dallas is one of 100
planned throughout the United States.
"We're gonna call on this nation to examine its laws that disproportionately
and negatively impact the African American community, as well as brown and poor
people," said Friendship Baptist Church pastor Fredrick Haynes, III.
The rallies will call for the Justice Department to bring
federal civil rights charges against George Zimmerman and for laws the group
feels negatively impact minorities and the poor to be changed.
The rally is scheduled for 11 a.m. on Saturday at Dallas
City Hall plaza.
