Protesters March in D.C. After Zimmerman Acquittal

Marchers took to the streets of D.C. early Sunday morning to protest George Zimmerman's acquittal in the death of Trayvon Martin.
"Trayvon was murdered," the marchers chanted as they walked up U Street from 9th in the Northwest, a few carrying signs or placards. Other times, they chanted, "No justice, no peace."
One sign read: "Only white life is protected in America."
The march gathered people as it traveled through District streets early Sunday, reported News4's Darcy Spencer. The protesters shut down some intersections, including 14th and U streets.
Police were nearby and watched the marchers, but did not interfere. 
The gathering in DC was one of several reported in U.S. cities Saturday night and Sunday morning as people reacted to the jury's finding that Zimmerman was not guilty in Martin's death. The D.C. protest came together quickly as organizers spread the word via social media.
