CARBONDALE, IL (KFVS) -

From New York to California, rallies like the one in Carbondale took place across the country.

Very emotional crowd carried signs and wore shirts in support of Trayvon Martin.

Many of changing "Justice for Trayvon" and "Don't be silent."

The goal was to send a message

"This ruling says that I wouldn't have the right to punch back with my fists, but if I did that person has the right to shoot me and that's crazy," says Marisa Winegar, a protestor.

"For a young, young kid not even a man yet, not to be able to walk home from the store is just a tragedy," says Anjanette Tucker, another protestor.
