Rally for Trayvon

Posted: Updated:

Since the Zimmerman verdict, some people across America have been speaking out by holding marches and rallies, most of them peaceful, and now Arklatex residents are adding their voices.

"we are tired of people coming into our community and killing and we are tired of people in our community killing each other. This isn't just about Trayvon and Zimmerman, this is also about what is going on in our community this," says rally organizer Lester Smith.

Smith along with Kojo Livingston are asking the public to join the fight to have federal civil rights charges filed against George Zimmerman.

"If he had shot a dog he would have got time like Michael Vick."says Livingston.

Dr. Artis Cash is also  calling for federal  charges saying  "We need to change the laws that's the first thing we got to do."

This coming Saturday at Noon rallies will be held at  federal court houses across the United States,  including here in Shreveport

Cash says, "Trayvon had a civil right to go home, now if you impede his going  home you have violated his civil rights."
