    Marchers took to the streets of D.C. early Sunday morning to protest George Zimmerman's acquittal in the death of Trayvon Martin.

    "Trayvon was murdered," the marchers chanted as they walked up U Street from 9th in the Northwest, a few carrying signs or placards. Other times, they chanted, "No justice, no peace."
    One sign read: "Only white life is protected in America."
