JUSTICE FOR TRAYVON

Protesters Block L.A. Freeway

Protesters angry over the George Zimmerman verdict blocked a Los Angeles freeway on Sunday night, while about 80 marched to the CNN building in Hollywood just after midnight Monday, causing police to declare an unlawful assembly. Police said the protests were mostly peaceful, but at least seven were arrested throughout the day. At one demonstration, protesters threw rocks and D-cell batteries, which led to police firing bean bags at the crowd. Rallies were also held in New York: hundreds marched in Times Square, and demonstrations were held in Harlem and Union Square, resulting in seven arrests throughout the city. Hundreds also protested in San Francisco and Oakland on Sunday. Zimmerman, 29, was acquitted Saturday night of all charges relating to the death of unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin in Florida last year.
