Workshop: Don't Die Wondering: Atlanta Against the Police Winter 2011-2012
In September 2011, a weak and inexperienced black bloc tore away from the ritual of Leftist political practice. Last winter, in the wake of a dying Occupy movement, dozens of Atlanta anarchists, anticapitalists and rebels participated in an unexpected surge of anti-police activity. This kick-started a roller coaster of experimentation and revolt which eventually crash-landed like a pair of sneakers on the windshield of a police cruiser 7 months later. Join some ATLiens in a discussion of these events, the energy that animated them, and the contradictions that ended it all.
Materials provided. We hope to offer our presentation and then have some constructive conversation.
