The Coalition to Stop Gun Violence has created a PSA that uses real audio from the 911 calls by George Zimmerman and more to recreate the fateful shooting of Trayvon Martin in February 2012.

In the video (below), Zimmerman is told by the 911 operator "we don't need you to" follow Martin.

According to Mediaite.com, there is also the 911 call made by a neighbor about the screaming, which ended in gunshots.

Actors play Zimmerman, Martin and the unidentified neighbor.

However, instead of one body on the ground, the advertisement features dozens of "dead" black young men in hoodies, who are supposed to represent the 26 states that have stand-your-ground laws.
