Jacksonville, FL – Two dozen protesters gathered outside of the courthouse here, Sept. 22, demanding justice for Jordan Davis as the retrial of Michael Dunn gets underway. Jury selection began today and protesters, many from the Jacksonville Progressive Coalition gathered at 8:00 a.m.

Michael Dunn is the racist killer who murdered Jordan Davis, a 17-year-old African American youth.

Present at the opening of the trial was the father of Jordan Davis, Ronald Davis, who was part of a group prayer asking for justice. Also present was the mother of Trayvon Martin, Sybrina Fulton, who spoke about her son's case and its relationship to the Davis case.

Protesters vowed to remain outside the courthouse for the duration of the trial until Jordan Davis's family received justice and Michael Dunn went to prison for the murder of their son. Members of the Progressive Coalition have a rally planned at 3:00 p.m. outside the downtown courthouse where the trial is going on.
