April 10 — Day of Outrage
On April 10, people in various cities around the U.S. took to the streets in a Day of Outrage to say “We Are All Trayvon Martin” and “The Whole Damn System Is Guilty.”
In New York City, a spirited multinational crowd of hundreds of people, of all ages, turned out in Lower Manhattan April 10 for a national Day of Outrage: We Are All Trayvon Martin; The Whole Damn System Is Guilty! In Los Angeles, a bold and electrifying speakout and march took place in the Crenshaw area (a major area of the city with a concentration of Black people), making a powerful political statement. After the speakout, the masses took to the street with the KJLH (radio free music station) street team van rolling behind the marchers, helping to block traffic. People were called on to join. The march grew as many did join in, including high school students.
Determined demonstrations were also held in Seattle, San Francisco Bay Area, Chicago, Boston, Cleveland, Houston, and Honolulu.
