My mother hit me and everyone defends her?

My mother and I have fights, and she often hits or slaps me. I’m 21 and she’s 60. But this last time was so bad I had to call the police. She was throwing cutlery and plates at my head, and throwing my belongings down the stairs. However, all our family friends have defended my mother and said it was wrong of me to call child services/the police. They said it’s ok for parents to hit their kids. What should I do? I feel so ganged up on. Every time she goes to hit me now I flinch because im scared, and I feel no one has my back in this. I never hit her back by the way. But my mother is gloating to me because everyone is taking “her side.”
