CHICO, Calif.- People here at home are also taking to the streets, angry about what happened to George Floyd.
Reporter Kristian Lopez was there as demonstrators held up signs and chanted during a protest and vigil in Downtown Chico on Saturday.
"I'm outraged like a lot of people are in the country about the killing of a person who should not have been killed," said Ann Polvika, who is a member of Concerned Citizens for Justice.
"We're mad, we're angry, we need to seek justice," said Danielle Allen, "I am out here to be in solidarity with those in Chico who also see that this is an ongoing issue."
There were nearly 100 people demonstrating signs near 3rd and Main Street in Downtown Chico, most people were wearing masks.
Organizers say it's a response to the death of George Floyd, they are asking for a change.
"We do not want our law enforcement to be acting in such an egregious manner, on the other hand, I feel that our police are under so much stress they are not thinking clearly about their actions so they need more care as well," said Marty Dunlap.
However, not everyone was in favor of the protest. Things got heated when a member of the community expressed concerns about some of the signs that were being demonstrated.
"I wish they would come together and say 'all lives matter' in a civil way, and that they would get together in a way that they should follow the law and also don't start hating police officers, that's something that starts to bother me because not all police officers are bad," said Cristina Preza.
"People have a right to their opinion, of course all lives matter, but we are seeing this type of injustice with one particular group and I think that's where we need to be paying attention," said Marty Dunlap.
The protest was organized by the group Concerned Citizens for Change.
Another protest is expected to take place on Tuesday at the Chico City Chambers, and another will take place on Friday June 5th at the Chico City Plaza.
