New Materials for the Eager Combatant

In light of recent anti-police activity here in Atlanta, we present a newly formatted version of the essay “Don’t Die Wondering: Atlanta Against the Police Winter 2011-2012.” The essay, which first appeared on a local blog seven months ago, catalogues a series of anti-police actions taken in Atlanta. “Don’t Die Wondering” includes exciting report-backs from the events, an extensive timeline, analysis produced from participants of the struggle, and a few pictures. This version of the text has been re-edited and contains an afterword written this spring.

A few hundred more will be distributed and there will be a release party for Atlanta's Burning 3 in a few weeks where we hope you will join us and pick up the new issue and maybe watch a film. The resolution problem that basically rendered the last issue unreadable has been overcome. Thanks for reading.

Atlanta: a Report-Back from October 22nd March

291 At 4pm, on October 22nd, roughly 50 people congregated in Woodruff Park as a part of the annual day against “police brutality and the criminalization of a generation.” The gathering was diverse and there were a handful of faces covered in scarves and masks throughout the crowd.

For about an hour, speakers from the October 22nd Coalition gave speeches while others played drums or posed for pictures in front of the huge “Fuck the Police” banner. Around 5pm, the crowd began marching toward the Atlanta City Detention Center. Although the organizers initially attempted to keep the crowd on the sidewalk, several hooded ones, drummers and a few folks holding a red flag walked in the street. The rest of the crowd joined and flooded all four lanes of traffic just as the event organizers irrelevantly gave their approval.

An Atlanta Ⓐnarchist Assembly

Sat, 11/03/2012 - 5:00pm
Coan Park
1530 Woodbine Avenue SE
Atlanta, GA
United States
To Atlanta's anarchists and the anarcha-curious:

The next Atlanta anarchist assembly is scheduled for Saturday November 3rd at Coan Park. Mark your calendars and please help spread the word as these assemblies are always better when a plurality of anarchist perspectives are represented.
We had a really great assembly in Oct and many of us are encouraged moving into the winter holding monthly assemblies, so lets all continue to reach out to anarchists, anti-authoritarians outside of our usual social circles.

The assembly will maintain:
- A rejection of all forms of hierarchy, including capitalism, patriarchy, white supremacy, heterosexism, and party based politics.
- Support for organizing on a non-hierarchical basis that promotes autonomy, solidarity, and the agency of those affected by each decision.

10.08.12 Noise Demonstration in Solidarity w/PNW Grand Jury Resisters

On Wednesday evening, we gathered in Troy Davis park for a march and noise demo in solidarity with the  grand jury resisters in the pacific northwest/(1). The action was scheduled to begin at 7pm Atlanta time. We'd been somber all day, showing the video of her statement(2) to anyone who hadn't seen it yet, but we were happy to be together.

Two dozen of us marched to the city jail to the loud sound of drum beats. While several anarchists from last winter participated in the event, there were many newer faces. Central figures from last year have become peripheral. Some who were less involved, including several who might not have identified as anarchists pre-Occupy, have been taking initiative and forming affinity groups.

Parking Meters Dismantled in Solidarity with Grand Jury Resistors

On the night of August 5th, we used industrial adhesives and a hammer to dismantle every parking meter on Edgewood Avenue in the Old Fourth Ward neighborhood of Atlanta (45 parking meters total). On a large wall next to the biggest section of parking meters we spray-painted "FUCK THE GRAND JURY -- <3 FOR PNW (A)".

This is just a small gesture of solidarity with comrades in Portland, Seattle, and Olympia who are resisting the grand jury which released 6 subpoeneas late last month. We know that the point of these hearings is to stultify the rebellion of those in the Pacific-Northwest who have helped to escalate the unending social war of which we are all apart. All across the country -- in San Francisco, Oakland, New York, East St. Louis, the Twin Cities, Seattle, and elsewhere -- anarchists have decided to meet this repression with further attacks against the dominant social order. We hope that our humble act warms the hearts of all who resist.
