Protesters gathered Tuesday on the Morristown Green to demand justice for Trayvon Martin, the unarmed Florida teen shot dead by a Neighborhood Watch captain.

Many wore hoodies, as Trayvon had done, and some carried Skittles, the candy that he bought moments before his fatal encounter with George Zimmerman. At the time of this protest, March 27, the shooter had not been arrested. He claimed the shooting was in self-defense.

This video includes several speakers from the Morristown event, including Mayor Tim Dougherty, Councilwomen Michelle Dupree Harris and Raline Smith-Reid, Morris County Prosecutor Robert Bianchi and Pastor Sidney Williams Jr. of the Bethel A.M.E. Church.
