Hundreds of protesters rallied in Freedom Plaza Saturday in honor of the Florida teen who was shot and killed last February.

Hundreds of protesters rallied in Freedom Plaza Saturday in support of Trayvon Martin, the 17-year-old Florida teenager who was shot and killed by a neighborhood watch volunteer.

Protesters wore hooded sweatshirts similar to the one Martin was wearing the day he was killed.

Martin's killer, George Zimmerman, claims he acted in self-defense against the unarmed teen. Zimmerman has not been arrested, prompting public anger across the country.

On Monday, organizers are also planning a rally at the U.S. Department of Justice to continue to pressure officials to arrest Zimmerman.
