OROVILLE, Calif.- Protestors gathered together for a silent march in Oroville for George Floyd. The peaceful march started at Municipal auditorium on Myers Street in Oroville.

“We're with you as a police department, we're with you," said an Oroville police officer over a loudspeaker.

At the beginning of the march, Pacific Coast Producers Oroville plant donated 100 masks to provide to those that didn’t have one. Nearly everyone in the crowd was wearing a mask.

Oroville Police, Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea, Oroville City council, and Mayor Chuck Reynolds supported and marched.

People held up signs during the march reading ‘i can't breathe’ and ‘black lives matter.’

“I think everyone here realizes we are not Minneapolis, we know each other’s names here, we are friends, we are neighbors," said Reynolds.

Protestors started the march on Myers street. They turned left on Montgomery, right on Oliver, right on Robinson, right on Oak, right on Montgomery, and back to Myers street.

“We’re here for peace, not violence," said protestor, Chanel Smith. "Just to get our point across, let them know that not just all black lives... but all lives matter."

Protestors continued to remind the crowd over a loudspeaker that the march is a 'solitary march' and for those that have other things in mind, can leave.

At the end of the march, protestors held a moment of silence of 8 minutes and 45 seconds for George Floyd. Those moments of silence were meant for the last minutes Floyd took his breath.
