The Atlanta Journal Constitution is reporting that over 700 bikers joined the NAACP at the Georgia State Capitol in an effort to encourage the Department of Justice to file charge against George Zimmerman.

According to the motorcycle club’s president Charles Ingram, the group had to cut off the amount of participants, telling the AJC, “We had to cut [the number of bike riders] off [at 700}”, adding, “Everybody was still coming trying to participate in the ride.”

The bikers rallied for over an hour at the capitol, chanting “we want justice” and “we are Trayvon Martin”.

The protest occurred on Sunday, July 28.
