Emergency Demo Following Darren Wilson Verdict

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

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.

Stalling Will Not Work: WRAS Protest Moved to June 29

https://defendwras.wordpress.com/2014/05/30/stalling-will-not-work-prote...

We have decided to push back the protest until June 29th.

As many of you know, the radio station takeover by GPB has been pushed back until this date. This delay has been caused by two things: one, by our pressure on GSU and GPB and two, by bureaucratic hold-ups on the part of GPB.

We will use this delay as an opportunity to bring more attention to the day of action. We feel that this is another way we can keep applying pressure: the threat of massive collective action on campus in the event of a takeover can be very powerful.

We do not intend to allow this delay to discourage us or to divert our focus. Stalling will not work. We are excited about having more time for student programming – we are very excited – and we are hopeful about the potential to stop the takeover altogether.

Autonomia Film Series: "Working Slowly"

So this is the final film of the Autonomia film series. This film, "Working Slowly" is based on true events. The movie is a fictional re-telling of the birth of "Radio Alice", a pirate radio station based in Bologna, Italy which, at it's peak, had a daily audience of 10,000 people. The station was controlled by the two operators and their friends and it played new music, interviews with artists and authors, promoted demonstrations and read aloud revolutionary literature and responses to the mainstream press at the time.

We urge supporters of #WRAS to attend, especially those who are attempting to organize to save the station and student radio in general.

We'd like to follow this film with a short discussion, and we'd love for you to join us.

May 1st Anticapitalist March

 

A Quick Summary

Around 6:30, between 30 and 40 people gathered at Freedom Park to attend the "Anticapitalist March." After a few words from some participants, masks were offered to those in the crowd and the group began their way up Moreland Avenue toward Little 5 Points. This route was the preferred marching path for several years up until 2012.

"Autonomy has no frontiers. It is a way of eluding the imperatives of production, the verticality of institutions, the traps of political representation, the virus of power...Autonomy is a way of acting collectively. It is made up of a number of organs and fluid organizations characterized by the refusal to separate economics from politics, and politics from existence."

- Sylvere Lotringer, "The Return of Politics"
