The Rev. Al Sharpton has spent the week organizing nationwide “Justice for Trayvon” protests to be held in 100 cities this Saturday – the one-week anniversary of the jury’s acquittal of George Zimmerman.
Sharpton, organizing the rallies through his National Action Network, said holding the protests a week later “will show the national anger over the verdict is not a ‘two- or three-day’ thing.”
The vigils and protests will be held in front of federal buildings in cities across the country and are intended to keep pressure on the Department of Justice to investigate Zimmerman for civil rights violations for shooting Trayvon Martin, Politico reported.
According to Politico, Sharpton told reporters during a Monday press conference:
It’s not over. And we are going to make sure it’s not over, that’s why we’re calling people to … organize in your city. I don’t care if it’s 20 people, we want to show the nation that over 100 cities a week later is still demanding justice. We’re not having a fit, we’re having a movement.
But while Sharpton, and so many others, including U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and former Sec. of State Hillary Clinton, have been lamenting the jury verdict, two conservative, citizen patriots have asked Facebook users to protest the Obama administration’s failure to seek justice for U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans killed in Benghazi.
In a public Facebook event called, “Justice for Christopher,” users are asked to change their profile picture on Saturday to one of Stevens in a hoodie, an image circulating online to ask what it would take for the Obama administration to pay attention to the murder of our four American diplomats.
According to the Facebook event, “Justice for Christopher:”
Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Information Officer Sean Smith, Ex-Navy Seals Tyrone Woods and Glen Dougherty had NO choice as they were deliberately and with malice left behind to be murdered by Muslim terrorists.
On Saturday, July 20, 2013, the same day race-baiter Al Sharpton has called for protests across the country to spread hate and retaliation against George Zimmerman, a man found NOT guilty by a jury of his peers, we ask that everyone change their profile pics for that one day to protest a real crime…the Obama administration’s decision to leave our Ambassador and the others behind.
