Continue the fight for justice for Trayvon! Protest the verdict!

Last night, Saturday, July 13th, Trayvon Martin's murderer, George Zimmerman, walked away from his trial a free man. This obvious injustice has outraged the country. Students for a Democratic Society calls on all chapters and all others who wish to end racism and national oppression to hold actions this week to demand JUSTICE FOR TRAYVON. We must take it upon ourselves to fight institutional racism, for the self-determination of African Americans and full equality for all oppressed nationalities. We must make sure these tragedies come to an end.
