MORE JUSTICE, MORE PEACE
About a hundred people gathered in Veterans Park today to protest the killing of Trayvon Martin and call for racial justice. After opening comments from Woullard Lett, a couple dozen people took turns denouncing the climate of racism that makes life dangerous for young black men. Speakers, including Ray Ealy, Alan MacKillop, Carol Backus, Sarah Alier, Mark Provost, and Mary Georges called for local actions to overcome fear and suspicion.
After the speak-out, the group marched up Elm Street through downtown Manchester. Chants of “No Justice, No Peace” alternated with chants of “More Justice, More Peace.” Following the march, participants met in Veterans Park to plan additional actions.
