ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  Two men carried signs to draw attention to their causes Monday morning in Albany.

Anthony Holt says that he is drawing attention to the fact that his record has not been expunged after he was cleared of a criminal charge, and as a result, he cannot get federal benefits that he says he is entitled to.

Maverick McKinney says the reason for his protest is the recent deaths of black men, including that of Freddie Gray in Baltimore. His sign says "Justice for All or Justice None." 

He says that America must stand up for justice.

"Regardless of the color, black or white, we just want justice. We want to be able to pursue the life, liberty, of the rights that were stated under the Constitution of the United States of America," said protestor Maverick McKinney.

The Sheriff and District Attorney told us they have met with Holt and there is a system in place to hear appeals of his convictions and criminal record.
