I am appalled to see that some of my fellow Libertarians are supporting accused murderer George Zimmerman, in the wake of the end of his trial for the killing of teenager Trayvon Martin.
As Libertarians we should be advancing the cause of civil rights and standing up against the racists in this country. The last thing we should do is echo the Republicans who are praising Zimmerman.
Facebook and Twitter continue to urge citizens to stand up for Trayvon Martin through protest: Sunday marks the National Blackout Day in angry response to Zimmerman’s freedom, according to Policymic.
Here are some of the demonstrations taking place around the country today, in opposition to the court ruling that freed Zimerman – and made it legal to stack and accost unarmed teens and shoot them to death:
Powell and Market
Oscar Grant Plaza
