July 15, 2013: Thousands March for #TrayvonMartin in NYC Union Square to the Bronx Supreme Court

Sunday, July 15, the day after George Zimmerman was found not guilty in the slaying of Trayvon Martin, thousands in New York City rallied and marched from Union Square to the Bronx and back to Harlem. I joined the march just as it left Union Square at 7pm and stayed with it until 2:30 am. 

For most of the time, the protest commanded control of whatever streets it took, and police avoided making arrests. This suddenly ended as the march moved into the Upper East Side, when police made several arrests, used pepper spray, and divided the march into several groups. 

Nonetheless, many continued marching to Harlem and the Bronx, and many more joined the protest along the way. It was clear that many had never been to a protest before, and felt empowered by the experience.
