"Trayvon could have been any one of our sons. Trayvon could have been any one of us," Sharpton said in Sanford Thursday night.

The Rev. Al Sharpton says activists are planning "a wave of civil disobedience" to protest the shooting death of Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Fla.

The civil rights leader told supporters on Saturday that organizers would hold a series of nonviolent protests calling for the arrest of the crime watch volunteer who confronted the unarmed black teenager because he thought he looked "suspicious," and then shot him.
 
The shooter, George Zimmerman, claimed he acted in self defense.
