Last night (March 21), throngs of protesters flocked to New York City’s Union Square to participate in the Million Hoodie March, a rally organized in support of the family of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, who was gunned down in Sanford, Florida on February 26. The gunman, neighborhood resident George Zimmerman, has yet to be apprehended by authorities, which has ignited outrage throughout the country. VIBE was on the scene of the protest to ask people one simple question: “Why are you here?” —Iyana Robertson
