Poster: Anticuts Atlanta #1

Re-posted from a poster seen around the Little 5 Points neighborhood in Atlanta, GA:

What the Fuck Was That?!

On the night of November 14th, roughly 40 people flooded Moreland Avenue with boomboxes and drums behind a banner reading "AGAINST AUSTERITY."

The roving mob funneled through the shopping district chanting "A-ANTI-ANTICAPITALISTA!" over filthy dubstep before convering on the Little 5 Points Plaza. Despite the overwhelming presence of police and Department of Homeland Security, there were no arrests.

But Why?

Atlanta Against Austerity 1st Meet-Up

Fri, 11/02/2012 - 6:00pm - 8:00pm
Dough Bakery
Across from the Inman Park MARTA Station
Atlanta, GA
United States

The occupation movement of last fall has ended. Regardless, the conditions that gave rise to it have remained fundamentally unchanged: the relative stability of the financial markets sits on atop a heep of austerity budgets.

The crisis continues to deepen. It remains obvious that any group of people who cannot afford to continue living will be forced to change themselves through annihilation or rebellion.

We hope to create a temporary organizing initiative in Atlanta to mobilize a general anti-capitalist fightback against austerity in the schools, health care, MARTA, the arts, and elsewhere. We do not seek a return to the pre-austerity era, but the crisis is making our lives unlivable. We hope to get together with others to increase our collective density and to create a public meeting space where others might get involved.
