Thousands around the country have united to protest the acquittal of George Zimmerman. Yesterday, we rounded up images from marches nationwide and Aura Bogado described the scene Sunday in New York City, where a multiracial mass began at Union Square and marched nearly 30 blocks to Times Square. They did so without a permit, stopping traffic but garnering cheers from stalled motorists and pedestrians along the way. Despite heavy police presence in anticipation of violence, the event remained peaceful from the late afternoon into the night.
