Change.org, the online campaigning tool whose petition on Trayvon Martin has attracted more than 2m signatures, has warned authorities in Florida that unless charges are brought against the teenager’s killer they should expect another massive surge in public anger.

Staff at the petitioning website, which played a key role in propelling the Trayvon Martin story onto the national and international stage, are focusing on the convening of a grand jury on 10 April as the next crucial moment.
