WASHINGTON (AP) — The Rev. Al Sharpton says there will be vigils and rallies in 100 cities this weekend to press for federal civil rights charges against George Zimmerman.

Zimmerman’s acquittal over the weekend in the shooting death of unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin has touched off protests around the country.

Sharpton announced the plan Tuesday at a news conference outside the Justice Department with several ministers. He did not say which cities are involved, but did say the rallies and vigils will be staged Saturday at federal buildings.

The Justice Department is investigating whether Zimmerman violated Martin’s civil rights when he shot the 17-year-old during a February 2012 confrontation in Sanford, Fla. Zimmerman said he fired his gun in self-defense.

A six-member jury acquitted Zimmerman of second-degree murder and manslaughter charges.

The Atlanta rally will be held in the Richard B. Russell Federal Building on 75 Spring St. SW
Atlanta, GA 30303 at 12noon EST.

Here are other events around Georgia that are supporting Trayvon Martin

In Marietta there will be  MARCH, RALLY &VIGIL  for Trayvon on Saturday, July 20, 6:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.    The march will begin from the Cobb County Civic Center, 548 South Marietta Pkwy SE, Marietta, GA 30060  (corner of S. Marietta Parkway and Fairground St) at 6pm to Glover Park in Marietta Square where the Rally/Vigil will be held.
