Million Hoodie March for Trayvon Martin | Thousands Gather [Photos]

Million Hoodie March for Trayvon Martin | Thousands Gather [Photos]

It’s not just a march, it’s a MOVEMENT!

words/photos by: Shareef

March 26, 2012- 30 Days after the murder of Treyvon Martin, the people of Los Angeles have finally held an organized march and rally, not only in Trayvon’s memory but for social political injustice.

 

The event started with a small attendance but gained a steady momentum as speakers from local to national organizations as well as actors and activists like Bishop Noel Jones, Najee Ali and Royale Watkins, participated for the evening.

 

Two hours into the rally, Pershing Square was filled with supporters and media lined up from the sidewalk on Hill Street, in perfect timing for spectators passing by at rush hour.

Initially, I wondered about the outsiders’ perspective as well as that of the media-if the media and police were  expecting thousands of people wearing hoodies to turn the rally into a spectacle or if they only considered the racial aspect of the protest and not the blatant nature of the crime.

(Channel 7 newscaster in his suit looking uncomfortable in the crowd)

The intensity of the crowd was easy to differentiate from the mainstream media covering the event, who stood aside cautious and fully aware of the climate of emotion. The outcries for justice were hard to ignore but the tension was neither menacing nor dangerous.

 

The few black nationalist groups holding court, such as the New Black Panthers and Nation Of Islam, might have seemed intimidating or too political for some, but politics aside, anyone could get a sense of family orientation with mothers, fathers and families by the hundreds in full support of the cause.

 

One couldn’t help but be impressed at the unity and urgency for human rights as each speaker and voice adamantly conveyed a common message: this protest was for equality for all people of color. This wasn’t a black thing, but a human thing.

The rally progressed with nearly a thousand or so supporters organizing into a march down Hill St and zig- zagged through Downtown with each street shut off by police. The sea of signs and voices calling for justice for Trayvon Martin made a massive impression which alone is a success. The image and message was clear. This was a peaceful protest with an objective that stayed on track without missing a beat.
