UPDATE: 4:51 p.m. Thursday, June 4 - Demonstrators have gathered for the third day in a row at the Chico Plaza.
Nearly 100 people gathered together, chanting “black lives matter,” “no justice, no peace,” and “I can’t breathe,” demanding justice.
CHICO, Calif. - A protest happened at the Chico Plaza again on June 3.
This is the second straight day protestors have gathered right across the street from city hall.
As officers patrolled the area, protestors chanted 'black lives matter', 'no justice, no peace', and 'prosecute the police'.
Some protestors found it heartwarming that people were speaking out. Others, like Ivory Peteet, are still waiting to see change.
"What brought me out here is because I've been living through this my whole life you know what I'm saying," said Peteet, "Chico Police Department they try and do their best thing out here. But it's not about that. What it's about is the injustice that happened all over the United States."
Protests were originally canceled after rumors of threats, but people still gathered to show their support and demand for change.
A Black Lives Matter protest is scheduled on Friday, June 5 at 4 p.m. in Downtown Chico.
