Two Trayvon Martin marches scheduled for Saturday in St. Pete

ST. PETERSBURG — Community leaders have organized two rallies Saturday related to the Trayvon Martin killing.

The case has sparked a national debate and protests all over the country.

On Saturday, both the International People's Democratic Uhuru Movement and National Christian League of Councils are hosting separate marches in St. Petersburg in honor of the slain teen, who was shot and killed in February by crime watch volunteer George Zimmerman at a gated Sanford community.

Zimmerman has not been arrested; state and federal agencies are investigating.

The Uhurus are hosting a march at 11 a.m. Saturday. It starts at Uhuru House, 1245 18th Ave. S and ends at City Hall, 175 Fifth St. N. For more information, call (727) 821-6620.

The NCLC march starts at 10:30 a.m. near the old Dali museum at 801 Third St. S and ends at 11:30 a.m. at Spa Beach Park. There will then be an "I am Trayvon Martin for Justice Rally" until about 1 p.m., organizers said. For more information, email nclcnational@gmail.com.
