Supporters Of Trayvon Martin March In Eugene
About 100 people gathered in Eugene Monday to show support for Trayvon Martin of Florida, who was killed last month by a neighborhood watchman.
The group marched downtown ending at the Wayne Morse Free Speech Plaza. There, representatives from the ACLU, NAACP, Occupy Eugene, and Mayor Kitty Piercy talked about racial profiling, gun control, and accountability. "I urge you today to think of this: A loss of a child is a loss of a piece of our future and all the possibilities they had. And that is an unbearable loss. We're together, let's make a difference."
Participants were asked to wear hoodies to show their support.
