(KMOV) – Dozens of people protested outside the Old Courthouse in downtown St. Louis on Thursday as the Coalition Against Police Crimes and Repression held a rally in response to the not-guilty verdict in the George Zimmerman case.

Group spokeswoman Jamala Rogers said the event, dubbed “From Outrage to Action,” was held to address injustices felt by many St. Louisans in the case involving the death of Trayvon Marting.

“This case has laid bare the many racial inequalities inherent in our society,” said Rogers. “No one action can produce racial justice.”

During the event, the group discussed several of the efforts of organizations and some current campaigns that attack racial injustice in the community.

The coalition said they also hope to get a city civilian review board in case as well as more oversight at the city jail.
