Friday, July 19, 2013

SAN DIEGO — Assemblywoman Shirley Weber on Thursday called for a boycott of the state of Florida in protest of last week’s acquittal in the Trayvon Martin shooting.

Weber, D-San Diego, said she is working with the California Legislative Black Caucus in organizing the boycott, asking people not to vacation there or attend conferences or conventions. She also called on Disneyworld and the Miami Heat basketball team to take a stand on the issue.
