PHOTOS: The LOVE Park Trayvon Martin Rally
On Sunday, Philadelphians gathered throughout the course of the day at LOVE Park to voice their anger about the verdict in the George Zimmerman trial. In a series of impassioned speeches by activists in the African American community (including Paula Peebles chair of the Philadelphia National Action Network, fifth photo, and radio host/political consultant Mannwell Glenn) , attendees were encouraged to fight for justice and to make an economic impact by boycotting products from Florida.
At one point, a second group chanting “Fired up, can’t take no more,” marched up to join the group already assembled, approximately doubling the head count.
Signs at the rally ranged from hopeful to outraged.
