On February 26, 2012, Trayvon Martin was shot dead by George Zimmerman, the
self-appointed head of a neighborhood watch in a gated community in
Sanford, Florida. The 911 calls reveal that Zimmerman was racially
profiling Trayvon--he told the dispatcher,
"This guy looks like he’s up to no good, or he’s on drugs or something.”
Before he shot him, Zimmerman made sure to tell the dispatcher that Trayvon
"looks black". Trayvon is dead today because he was a young black man
walking where someone thought he shouldn't be. His death proves that racism
in America is alive and well.

Trayvon Martin’s death is not an isolated event. This is the daily reality
for what it means to be black in America. From the hundreds of thousands of
Black and Brown incarcerated, to the millions who are denied the right to
equal education, affordable housing, quality healthcare and other social
services, and to those who suffer the daily insults of racist
bigotry---people have had enough!

His brutal murder, like that of Emmett Till, has become a rallying point
for millions fed up with a racist society. It has motivated people to turn
anger and outrage into protest and come out in the streets and demand
justice not only for his murder but against all the aspects of racism in
this society that caused his tragic death.

*On April 7, people will be marching in Sanford and Washington, DC. And in
Boston, we will be marching too.

*We will be marching from *RUGGLES to DUDLEY*, ending in front of the
Police Station, with a speak out near the old B2 barracks grounds.

JUSTICE FOR TRAYVON MARTIN!
Let your voice be heard!
