In the wake of Saturday’s not guilty verdict in the Zimmerman trial, demonstrations to protest the outcome have erupted all across the country, with more scheduled Monday and throughout the week.  Most have been peaceful, others not so much.  We’ve collected a handful of tweets, photos and videos from some of them here.

The @OccupyWallSt Twitter account tweeted a link to a list of Trayvon rallies in towns across the country.

An excerpt from the page reads:

It has been decided: black life isn’t worth shit.

Come together in force across the country tomorrow at 6pm.

Let’s not ask for justice: let’s make it happen ourselves.

Another excerpt, this one from, reads:

No more divide and conquer. We stand for all. We stand in support of the family of ‪#‎TrayvonMartin and his memory. He did not die in vain. He was the 99% with promise and potential. Capitalism and Racism legitimize each other. We need something brand new and we need it now.

Dear Trayvon...
