Call Out for Mass Indefinite Occupation

Following the non-indictment of Officer Darren Wilson in the brutal murder of Michael Brown, and the non-indictment of officer Daniel Pantaleo in the filmed strangulation of Eric Garner, we are announcing a mass indefinite occupation of Woodruff Park this Saturday, December 6, at 7pm.

We have been spat in the face. We know that others share this grief and rage with us. We are calling for everyone to join us in a mass experiment involving taking space, coordinating resources, and sharing ideas to continue the fight against this present disaster. The fight against police violence cannot be allowed to slowly wither away. For this reason, we think it is necessary to create a space for continuous organizing and we believe an occupation can provide this.

We stand in solidarity with rebels in Ferguson, New York City, Mexico and everywhere else fighting against police violence.

12/2 An Incomplete Timeline of the Struggle So Far

From https://atlfergusonsolidarity.wordpress.com/

On November 24th 2014, the prosecutor’s office of St. Louis County, MO announced that it would not indict police officer Darren Wilson for the shooting of Michael Brown. Immediately, the self-organized struggle against the police in Ferguson, MO and around the country took to the streets. The Ferguson skyline filled with smoke as thousands rampaged through the suburban streets and blocked the highways. In Oakland, CA hundreds burned trash bins, clashed with police, and marched onto the highway. In New York, demonstrators blocked the Brooklyn, Triboroughs, and Verazano bridges. This was only the beginning of what has become a nationwide composition, echoing back and forth from city to city in a pulsing rhythm of rebellion and refusal.

IT'S ON: NO INDICTMENT FOR DARREN WILSON

NO INDICTMENT FOR DARREN WILSON IN MICHAEL BROWN SHOOTING

IT'S ON.

WOODRUFF PARK, 7PM

Emergency Demo Following Darren Wilson Verdict

Date/Time: 
Mon, 11/10/2014 - 7:00pm - Tue, 11/25/2014 - 7:00pm
Location: 
Woodruff Park

On August 9, 2014 Darren Wilson, a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, shot Michael Brown to death while his hands were in the air.

In response, hundreds and then thousands of people, from Ferguson and beyond, marched and fought for the memory of Mike Brown in the face of tremendous police militarization and media smears.

For months, Ferguson, MO has gripped international news headlines as the streets have filled with tear gas.

Solidarity protests have occurred all over the world, including here in Atlanta.

Officer Darren Wilson has still not been indicted. We do not have faith that justice comes from the courtroom and we believe that the grand jury investigating this case is waiting for the opportune moment to announce that there will be no indictment for this cop.

**MEET AT 7PM IN WOODRUFF PARK THE DAY AFTER THE ANNOUNCEMENT**

Delayed Report on Atlanta Mike Brown Solidarity Demonstrations

In the spirit of renewed conflict in St. Louis and Ferguson, MO, following the police murder of 18 year old Vonderitt “Drew” Myers, we are posting a very brief round up of events which transpired in solidarity with the first wave of rioting in Ferguson in response to the killing of Mike Brown. In the event of no indictment for Darren Wilson, who killed Mike Brown, we hope to see disorder spread to every square inch of this country. In that spirit, we'd like to catalogue what has transpired so far.

Anarchists Target Chapel Hill Police Headquarters in Solidarity with Luke O'Donovan and Ferguson Rioters

In the early hours of August 14th, three police cruisers were smashed out at the Chapel Hill Police Department Headquarters in Chapel Hill, NC. A message was also painted on one of the cars, reading, "For Luke."

This was done as a small gesture of solidarity with Luke O'Donovan, of Atlanta, GA, who was recently sentenced to two years in prison for defending himself against five homophobic attackers. We hope this brings a smile to his face.

We also carried out this act in solidarity with the rioters and looters of Ferguson, MO, who, in the face of continued brutality by racist police, have inspired the world with their courageous resistance against the forces of state, capital, and white supremacy. May their insurrection spread.

Both as small groups and entire neighborhoods, it is possible to fight back.

Luke’s Trial Begins August 11

 

The case has moved slowly through the court system. In April, Luke was re-indicted with an additional charge, and now faces five charges of felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and one charge of attempted murder. After over a year of waiting, Luke’s self-defense immunity hearing occurred in July of this year. Luke was denied immunity, but the defense feels that the hearing went well for Luke.
