PUTTING UP THEIR DUKES<br>Just a week after the Chico City Council approved a controversial “disorderly events” ordinance, an opposition group emerged, calling itself Chico Citizens for Civil Rights. Spokeswoman Jessica Allen (pictured) said the group is gathering signatures for a referendum. At a press conference Tuesday (Nov. 13) outside City Hall, Allen said the ordinance would allow police to break up lawful protests and marches if three laws are witnessed being broken. “The police should protect us from those people, not hold us accountable for their actions,” she said. Look for members of the group at the Saturday Farmers Market or Woodstocks Pizza from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays.
