ATLANTA (WAOK/AJC)- More than three thousand people mostly students from the Atlanta area HBCUs attended an emotional highly charged protest rally for Trayvon Martin at the Georgia State Capital on Monday.
The Atlanta rally, was one of the dozens held across the country on the one month anniversary of the death of Martin.
Officials had to close the street in front of the Capitol and several times Derrick Boazman activist and talk show host on WAOK asked the crowd to make room for people who were still lined among Martin Luther King Blvd trying to hear the speakers at the rally.
Hundreds of students from the Atlanta University Center marched down Martin Luther King Jr. Drive from their campuses to attend the rally. The late afternoon heat and the wearing of hoodie sweatshirts lead to several people needing medical attention.
The crowd was prompted to chant No Justice, No Peace by several speakers and all chanted, I AM TRAYVON.
The two youngest members of the Georgia House of Representatives reacting to last months shooting death of a 17-year-old in Florida in a case that has riveted the nation promised to file legislation Tuesday that would repeal Georgias Stand Your Ground law.
Reps. Alisha Thomas Morgan, D-Austell, and Rashad Taylor, D-Atlanta, said, despite the fact that the 2012 legislative session is almost over, gun legislation has to be reigned in. In the time remaining in the session, the General Assembly is debating a bill that would lower the age to carry a gun to 18.
We want to make a statement to get the conversation started, Taylor said. So when we come back, we will have something. This doesnt make any sense. We should not have a society where guns are the norm.

Thousands??? Not a problem!
I just saw a report on the Martin/Zimmerman case on my local CBS station, channel 4 in Dothan, Alabama.
About as twisted as they could make it. Every picture they showed of Martin showed him a young boy, maybe 10 years old. Not a single one of him as he looked recently.
Nothing but one side of the story except they did show a bit of the other side about the “stand your ground law” but it was just a quote from one guy saying they needed to look at all the facts. All the others were people like Jesse Jackson et al. screaming for it to be removed.
This all came from CBS, not the local station but they have not really been better.
Seems to me that Obama has gotten what he wants. He has had his sycophant Leftist press/MSM divert attention off of himself, his failings as POTUS.
The MSM in conjunction with the usual Race Hustlers are all working overtime to stir up a pot of racial tensions so massive as to disallow the failings of Obama, and crew of ne’er do wells to be seriously addressed by anyone much less listened to.
Getting that fellow that shot the black kid in self defense as the kid was beating the crap out of him supercedes any issue we the people in America might have with our worthless POTUS, and his radical gang of thieves currently running this country into the ground.
Does anybody know where the news went?
“I’m a copyrighted thug” rally?
“I am Trayvon Martin”.
No, you are a moron.
Last time I saw that many hooded people, they were chasing the Blues Brothers in Illinois.
So afterwards did they start trekking up to North Carolina to condemn the killing of an elderly white woman at the Durham tire store last week?

I must have missed it. No national news? No weapon to defend herself from ANIMALS?
How about all these Blacks who are committing an inordinate amount of crime with these guns?
Why don’t they tell the truth and call it the “Get the Jew” rally because that is the ONLY reason this crap is going on. If it was “Diego” instead of “Zimmerman” there is no way in hell this shiet would be going on nor would two of the biggest anti-semites going, Sharpton and Jackson be involved.
I thought for sure they would Riot to be honest.
Maybe they could get Borat to show up:
Throw the Jew down the well
So my country can be free
You must grab him by his horns
Then we have a big party
rather than POTUS, can we refer to Barry Soetoro as the PINO instead...
Did you read about Trayvons mom (or moms, to use the proper lingo) copyrighted his name? Levin was talking about it tonight, it’s on smokinggun.com I forget what it was, but she copyrighted two phrases with his name, one of which I think was that one that you show Obama modeling.
I am Michonne.
I am Trayvon Martin
We know; that is why we avoid your neighborhoods. You’re ALL Trayvon.../s
