SANFORD, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35 ORLANDO) -

A group of protesters plans to hold a "National Hoodie March" in Sanford this morning as jury selection in the George Zimmerman trial gets underway.

The group plans to gather in front of the Seminole County Courthouse at 9 a.m. to demand justice for Trayvon Martin. At noon, protesters wearing hoodies plan to pull their hoodies over their heads.

"We want justice for Trayvon Martin. ... This is something we're determined to struggle for, and you know, it's the only way it's going to happen is if people in huge numbers around the country show up and show their solidarity and demand it," one protester said.

"Without continued resistance, there will not be justice in this case, or any of the cases where there is a target painted firmly on the backs of black and Latino youth," the group said in a news release.

Some in the group say they traveled from as far as New York.

The unarmed 17-year-old Martin was shot and killed by Zimmerman in a gated Sanford community in February 2012. Zimmerman is claiming self-defense in his second-degree murder trial.
