Candlelight Vigil for Trayvon Martin Tomorrow Night in Downtown Santa Ana

George Zimmerman, as everyone knows now, was acquitted of all charges in the fatal shooting of unarmed black Florida teenager Trayvon Martin. A six-woman jury, five of whom were white, returned a not guilty verdict in the high-profile case late Saturday.

Demonstrations took place on Sunday from Times Square New York to Los Angeles where part of the 10 freeway was shut down in South Central by protestors. But what of OC?

Not content to stand idly by as Martin supporters from coast to coast express their anger, grief, and sorrow, locals will gather for a vigil at Sasscer Park near the corner of Ross and Fifth streets in downtown SanTana tomorrow. Organizers are asking those who plan to attend to bring signs and candles starting at 8 p.m.

And don't forget to put those hoodies up in memory of Trayvon, too...
