Pittsburghers call press conference condemning acquittal of George Zimmerman and Demanding Justice


crop smlJuly 16, 2013


In response to the acquittal of George Zimmerman, the people of Pittsburgh call a press conference and rally at noon on Wednesday July 17, 2013 at the Allegheny County Courthouse, 436 Grant Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15219.

We gather to condemn the not guilty verdict of George Zimmerman and to express solidarity with every black victim of injustice.

We recognize that Trayvon Martin’s murder is not an isolated incident. Pittsburgh is home to the same systemic injustice, racism, white supremacy and brutalization of black people. In response, we are formally delivering a set of demands to the mayor and city council following the rally.

This action is a continuation of the rallies held last Sunday at Freedom Corner and Mellon Park. We will continue to stand our ground with other groups fighting for justice around Pittsburgh and the nation. We expect city officials to address our demands immediately.

How long must they kill our children / while we sit aside and look

Zimmerman was acquitted / Another precious life was took

Come and take a stand / A stand for freedom

Change is in our hands / Trraaavooonn’s song
