THE BRONX - People in the Bronx haven't given up on their calls for justice in support of slain Florida teen Trayvon Martin.

Another peaceful rally was held Sunday at the Latino Pastoral Action Center on 170th Street, a week after George Zimmerman was found not guilty in the fatal shooting of the 17-year-old.

Organizers say the judicial process is not over, and they want to see Zimmerman face federal civil rights charges.

A large protest was also held along the Grand Concourse Saturday, and many more were held in other parts of the city and the country.
