Hundreds in Philly Protest Zimmerman Verdict



Hundreds of people marched peacefully through downtown Philadelphia on Sunday to protest the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the February 2012 shooting death of unarmed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
 
Philadelphia Police Lt. Dennis Konczyk of the civil affairs unit estimated that 700 people participated in the march, and said the event was calm and orderly. One of the protest's organizers, Johnathan Cooper, said he and others began amassing participants through social media and email after the verdict was announced late Saturday night.
 
As the protesters walked through the city, from Love Park to the Liberty Bell and back, they alternated between chanting Trayvon Martin's name and "No justice, no peace." At times, they chanted "Retrial."
