Dozens march in Phoenix for 'Justice for Trayvon'

PHOENIX -- Dozens of people participated in a protest march in Phoenix on Monday, calling for federal civil rights charges to be filed against Florida neighborhood watch activist George Zimmerman.

A Florida jury acquitted Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

Approximately 75 people marched in downtown Phoenix, chanting "Justice for Trayvon."

The marchers went first to City Hall and then to the federal courthouse.

The Rev. Luther Holland prayed aloud for consideration of federal charges against Zimmerman, saying and he and fellow protesters feel "deep concern, deep hurt and deep anger" over the case.

The Rev. Jarrett Maupin Chants led chants such as "I am Trayvon," and he called on the Arizona Legislature to change the state's stand-your-ground self-defense law.
