Protestors of George Zimmerman's verdict of "not guilty" are coming together, nationwide, to demonstrate their disapproval.

The decision to have Zimmerman go free with no responsibility for the death of the Florida teen has inspired many to participate in what they call a movement.

Reverend Al Sharpton is reportedly leading this movement, which started in 100 cities nationwide at 12:00 p.m.

In downtown Cleveland, the rally is being held at the CUS District Federal Court located at 801 W. Superior Ave.

The mantra of the demonstrations is civil rights violations and it has been reported that the rallies will be peaceful.
