    Protests sprang up around the country on Monday in support of slain unarmed black teen Trayvon Martin, who was killed last month in Florida. Demonstrations have taken place in Florida and in New York over the last week, but Monday marked the first time multiple events were held. Protesters in cities including San Francisco and Atlanta called for the arrest of George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watchman who shot 17-year-old Martin. Trayvon's parents were set to appear at a Sanford, Fla., city council meeting Monday night, which had been moved to a new location to accommodate the anticipated large crowd.
