Trayvon Martin’s parents also joined the protests organized by the veteran civil rights activist Reverend Al Sharpton to push the US Justice Department to bring a civil rights case against Zimmerman.

Martin’s mother Sybrina Fulton was leading the Saturday rally along with Sharpton just outside police headquarters in New York.
