April 08, 2013

The first segment of video shows a youth being carried by officers after he was reportedly beaten by Officer Hall (#6728).

A crowd gathered and objected to the violence, and Lt. MJA Lewis (#3211) responded by attacking a man and woman in the crowd. They were both thrown to the ground, pepper-sprayed, and beaten while on the ground. The man was struck in the head, and has suffered a blood clot in his eye and other medical problems related to the beating.

Finally, the father of the woman who was arrested speaks out about the abuse of his daughter and son-in-law.

Public Meeting About Copwatching

Date/Time:

Atlanta, GA
United States

Copwatch is a tactic for stopping police harassment and brutality.  Basically it means recording the police when you see them messing with someone.  It can be a powerful tool, and we want to see it used more.

So we are calling a public meeting for everyone who is interested in this idea.  We will discuss:

- Who already watches the cops in Atlanta, and what their experiences have been

-  Organizing street patrols in different communities

- How to incorporate copwatch into existing movements

- New ideas for taking action against police violence

- More!

Everyone is welcome, except police!

Atlanta: a Report-Back from October 22nd March

291 At 4pm, on October 22nd, roughly 50 people congregated in Woodruff Park as a part of the annual day against “police brutality and the criminalization of a generation.” The gathering was diverse and there were a handful of faces covered in scarves and masks throughout the crowd.


For about an hour, speakers from the October 22nd Coalition gave speeches while others played drums or posed for pictures in front of the huge “Fuck the Police” banner. Around 5pm, the crowd began marching toward the Atlanta City Detention Center. Although the organizers initially attempted to keep the crowd on the sidewalk, several hooded ones, drummers and a few folks holding a red flag walked in the street. The rest of the crowd joined and flooded all four lanes of traffic just as the event organizers irrelevantly gave their approval.
