"Justice for Trayvon" march held in Little Rock

LITTLE ROCK (KATV) -

Cities all over the country held "Justice for Trayvon" vigils Saturday, including Little Rock.

It was just one of 100 cities marching in conjunction with the National Action Network.

The group wants to press the federal government to investigate civil rights charges against George Zimmerman.

"We believe that there was some injustice that was done," said Rev. Tyrone Broomfield with the Central Arkansas March and Vigil. "We just ask that the federal court come back and look into the situation and if we are wrong, we stand to be corrected. But I think that when we heard the verdict, and those that are behind me, when we heard the verdict we said man, when we heard the verdict that we did not think that was the right verdict at that time."

The African Methodist Episcopal Churches hosted the march.
