Parking Meters Disabled for Ian Stark, Jesus Huerta

Over the past week, we glued the coin and card slots of 54 parking meters along Edgewood, Auburn, Jessie Hill, Ponce de Leon, and DeKalb Ave.

Additionally, some 7 meters were partially glued shut. Because of carelessness or mechanicle error, some meters had the coin slots glued shut but the credit-card slots left open, or vice versa. We found if we did not hold the glue in place with a piece of scrap metal, it had the potential of running down the machine before drying.

Lastly, five electronic ParkAtlanta pay-machines were glued shut which, we hoped, would free up parking for 35 additional spaces. We have since found out that customers can pay for any parking spot within an area at any of these machines nearby. Those who endeavor to disable these machines in the future should work with this knowledge: you have to destroy all of the machines on a strip in order for the payment process to be frozen.

Microphone Demo: Solidarity w/West Coast Hunger Strikes

Date/Time: 
Sun, 07/14/2013 - 4:00pm - 6:00pm
Location: 
Five Points MARTA
peachtree street
Atlanta, GA
United States

Over 30,000 Californian prisoners have begun a hunger and work strike against their conditions. In solidarity, youth prisoners in Washington have gone on strike and issued demands of their own. In Youngstown, Ohio prisoners have recently decided to join the strike. Point being, prisoners in the US are sharpening their struggle and increasing their self-organization and we must do the same.

Multiple hunger strikes and at least one riot have taken place in Georgia prisons in the last few years. This struggle can have local implications.

An ad hoc "strike support committee" has been meeting to amplify the struggle of the California prisoners and to link their struggle to inmates here. In addition to a letter-writing and strategy meeting which will occur next week, the group has decided to hold weekly "microphone demos" every Sunday at the Five Points MARTA for as long as the strike persists. The demos will occur after Food Not Bombs ends.

Poster: California Prison Rebels Are On Strike

We have designed a poster for your reading/viewing pleasure. We would like to see these adorn the walls of collective houses, coffee shops, and basically every other surface – especially ones they don’t belong on.

We recommend posting these in areas with high foot traffic on basically any smooth surface. The more the merrier. Remember: propaganda is a way we can interact with places, not just people. Let’s redecorate every empty pole, clean metal box, storefront window and bulletin board.

Prisoner Hunger Strike Solidarity Meet-up

Date/Time: 
Wed, 07/10/2013 - 6:30pm - 8:00pm
Location: 
Joe's East Atlanta Coffee
510 Flat Shoals Road
Atlanta, GA
United States

July 8th will mark the beginning of a hunger strike planned for several facilities on the West Coast. At the last anarchist assembly it was decided that solidarity should be extended and that people wanted to get together to organize some solidarity events, letter writings, and to help the message of the prison struggle outside of the prison walls.


This is be the first meet up so bring ideas about things to do in the short and long term. If you are interested, dont hesitate to come and bring some friends.

Date/Time: 
Sun, 07/07/2013 - 5:00pm - 7:00pm
Location: 
Decatur Square
On top of the Decatur Marta Station
Atlanta, GA

The Anarchist Reading/Discussion group has been meeting biweekly in Decatur to discuss texts and events related to Anarchism and Anti-Capitalism. After discussing "Spaces" at the last meet-up people said they enjoyed having a specific topic to discuss and so for the next meet-up people decided that we should discuss "Nihilism."

Here are two texts to supplement the discussion.

They are short and will be read a loud at the start of the meeting, so no need to read them all before hand. The meet-up will occur in the pavilion above the Decatur Marta.
