TALLAHASSEE, FL – All across America it’s a call for change and justice.

The George Zimmerman case has sparked a fire for many. Zimmerman was found not guilty in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

Protestors gathered nationwide for ‘National Justice for Trayvon Day.’

Over a hundred rallies were held outside federal courthouses across the U.S. Protestors want Zimmerman to be charged by federal prosecutors.

In Florida, they’re asking for the repeal of the ‘Stand Your Ground’ law that allows force in self-defense with no duty to retreat.

But a change in the law seems unlikely. Florida’s Governor Rick Scott met with protestors, and while he says he’s also mourning the death of Trayvon Martin, he supports the law and won’t be changing it.
