Finally, for over three weeks now protesters have occupied the state house demanding Governor Rick Scott call a special session of the state legislature to address concerns about the ‘Stand Your Ground law’ Yesterday, the ongoing sit-in protests at the Florida Capitol in Tallahassee continued.
The #TakeOverFL campaign is being led by an organization called the Dream Defenders. The group as well as millions of Americans wants the ‘Stand Your Ground’ law repealed, racial profiling banned, and for state legislators to review zero tolerance policies in schools.
Legendary actor and civil right activists Harry Belafonte and Jesse Jackson have also traveled to the Capitol to support the cause. So far efforts haven’t made much ground. Gov. Scott met with some of the protesters on July 18th, but says he has no plans to change the legislature and has publicly supported the ‘Stand Your Ground’ law. Rather he called on a statewide “Day of Prayer” to end racial profiling.
Oddly enough, this is exactly why people want the law thrown out, because it protects vigilantes like George Zimmerman to “racially profile” a person without a just cause. Press play to learn more now and find out what legendary MC has joined the fight.
