Noise Demo in Solidarity with Hunger Striking Immigrants in Tacoma, WA

Date/Time: 
Wed, 03/19/2014 - 7:00pm - 9:00pm
Location: 
CNN Center to ICE to ACDC Atlanta, GA
United States

Our brothers and sisters in Tacoma, Washington have displayed great bravery and courage by going on a hunger strike. Immigration Detention Centers are prisons without trials, without any rights. The strike began March 7 with hundreds refusing to eat as they call for better treatment and an end to deportations. Nearly two million people have been deported since President Obama took office, which is more than under any other administration. Since it has been increasingly clear that detainees and immigrant rights activists cannot afford to wait for politicians, they have resorted to militant actions against deportations that are tearing up their families. Detention centers around the country aren’t exempt from savage human abuses. Tens of thousands of prisoners from California to Georgia have gone on hunger strikes to call attention to serious violations such as indefinite solitary confinement and retaliation.

Tractors Sabotaged for the ZAD, No TAV, Hambach Forest

On the night of February 22nd, we poured a mixture of sand and water into the fuel tanks of two tractors used in the construction of a new Atlanta streetcar. The streetcar is one of many major development projects the city has initiated in the past few years as a part of a general plan to revitalize downtown. We know that this plan only means more police and unaffordable housing.

We offer this small gesture of solidarity to the ZAD, the No TAV movement, and the occupation of the Hambach Forest. We would also like to send strength to those affected by increased surveillance or repression the new developments have brought to Atlanta.

Our action was very simple to perform. It did not take long to plan or to enact and we found all of the materials on the side of the road. We do not believe that an accumulation of "actions" makes a revolution, but we wanted to give encouragment to the current and future participants of revolutionary struggles. Onward, strong hearts!

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.

Poster: Queer Means Dangerous

This poster was created as a token of love and in solidarity with all those who resist. From Luke O'Donovan to the Trans-Liberation marchers Atlanta has many reasons to be proud.

Keep fighting and never ever stop! <3

Discussion : Can Georgia Build a Moral Monday Coalition?

Date/Time: 
Mon, 08/26/2013 - 12:00pm
Location: 
GA Hill Street Community Center
250 Georgia Avenue
United States

Each Monday while the NC Assembly was in session, a broad coalition of community, faith, civil rights, labor, student, women's, environmentalist, LGBTQ and other organizations rallied inside and outside the  Assembly chambers to oppose a right-wing agenda that cut education and voting rights, attacked collective bargaining and reproductive health, reduced unemployment benefits and gave tax breaks to the rich and powerful, endangered the environment and increased repressive measures against immigrants. Over 900 people from across the state were arrested in civil disobedience actions. Following the close of the session, large Moral Monday rallies continue to take place in cities and towns throughout NC.

Atlanta Fast Food Workers Rising! Rally to Raise the Wage!

Date/Time: 
Thu, 08/29/2013 - 4:00pm - 6:30pm
Location: 
Five Points Marta Station
30 Alabama Street SW
United States

Local unions are organzing to make Atlanta a part of the nationwide fight to raise wages for fast food workers. This will probably just be a large rally where bosses will talk for a long time then there will be a preplanned march (most likely) to somewhere in the area. 

It might be cool for people to go and talk to the more uncontrollable elements there and build up connections because it is likely that this could escalate and if not the unions will most likely drop the campaign. The situation in New York has been interesting and it would be cool to see what could happen in Atlanta. Some of the actions have been pretty intereting and with the decline in capital's ability to provice demands all struggles have had to push the limits even for the smallest reforms. It might be intersting to see what these struggles can evolve into.

Some organizers are publicly organizing a demonstration to follow the Zimmerman verdict. The call-out is explicitly anti-judicial, anti-clergy, anti-political, and obviously anti-police. The call-out basically critiques white supremacy and contemporary counter-insurrectional strategies used by the state and the churches.
