RED BLUFF, Calif. - Dozens of people marched, chanted and protested in Red Bluff Monday for George Floyd.
“He could not breathe, he could not be heard,” said Krystal Bennett. “We are here to be the voice. If I can use my white privilege to be heard because rights are being taken, then I need to be here and be as loud as I can.”
For Floyd and all the lives impacted in the country and community.
“I was almost killed here in Red Bluff,” said Jazmine Beaver. “I just wanted to show support for the minorities that are here. I just want to say I am so happy and thankful for all the white people here that love us and care about us.”
Protestors marched for hours through the sidewalks and crosswalks.
“I’ve grown up here my whole life and this is a very hot bed conservative place and Iwanted to empower the youth and minorities here,” said organizer Mitchell Morehead.
All was peaceful as planned by the organizers. Red Bluff Police watched from above and gave its support.
“We’re not going to get nothing done by making us look like thugs, not by looting, rioting, not by none of that,” said organizer Jillian Clark. “That just causes more death and violence and promotes the very thing that we are fighting.”
