    Georgia's Trayvon Protest Rally. We Haven't Overcome. That's Why I March/Protest!

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     AntAntoine shot this video of a rally in Atlanta, Georgia, for Trayvon Martin on the steps of the State Capitol. He estimates close to 500 people showed up for the protest. 'What was encouraging to me was to see the number of families there, mothers and fathers bringing their children, and students,' he said. 'I loved that this was another opportunity for people to unite. I hope that's not forgotten with Trayvon Martin, and that spirit carries on.'
    - jmsaba, CNN iReport producer

    Not my first time at Georgia's State Capital in protest and sadly, I know it won't be my last. From coast to coast, protesters demand justice in Trayvon Martin case and in Georgia, we represented our support. The most moving part of Georgia's protest was the closing prayer and the singing of We Shall Overcome. Sadly, we've yet to overcome. I'm so thankful to have been counted at Georgia's protest but hate that yet again in America, I have to protest for another (black) man's justice. WE DEMAND JUSTICE FOR TRAYVON MARTIN and so many other young black men senselessly killed in America.
