fuck the police

Tires slashed on Dekalb police cruisers

Earlier this week we slashed the tires out of a Dekalb county police vehicle. The vehicle was parked near the East Lake MARTA station on a residential street with no officer inside.


This small action was taken in solidarity with the friends and family of Jesus "Chuy" Huerta, killed in a Durham police cruiser in North Carolina. We are inspired by the brave actions taken against the police in his memory and hope to see it spread.


Keep fighting and make them pay.

Poster: It's Hot Out in Edgewood: Fuck the Heat

This poster is made to be printed on 11x17 paper and posted everywhere. Many have been posted in the Edgewood Court apartments alongside the poster "War in the Neighborhood." Some residents have responded favorably to the posters and they recieved mention in the press conference head-pig Chief Turner did on the riot that took place on April 9th.


Text from the poster:

"For the second night in a row, people confronted the police in Edgewood Court in response to endless repression, raids, and harrassment. The march at 5pm took on a different character than the previous standoffs with the police in Edgewood. This time, instead of waiting for the police to attack, people went out on their own terms.

Poster: War in the Neighborhood

This poster, attached below, is made to be printed on 11x17 paper and posted around town everywhere.


"On April 8th, residents at Edgewood Courts apartments confronted dozens of Atlanta police officers who were attacking a crowd of people. What made this event remarkable was not the repression -- beatings and arrests are standard police behavior -- but that people fought back.

The specific events are not clear to us, but we understand this struggle as another moment of the endless conflict between populations and the police designed to control them: Oakland 2010, Seattle 2011, Anaheim 2012, and East Flatbush, Brooklyn a few weeks ago. All over the country, neighborhoods have organized to resist their common enemy: the cops.

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.

10.08.12 Noise Demonstration in Solidarity w/PNW Grand Jury Resisters


On Wednesday evening, we gathered in Troy Davis park for a march and noise demo in solidarity with the  grand jury resisters in the pacific northwest/(1). The action was scheduled to begin at 7pm Atlanta time. We'd been somber all day, showing the video of her statement(2) to anyone who hadn't seen it yet, but we were happy to be together.

Two dozen of us marched to the city jail to the loud sound of drum beats. While several anarchists from last winter participated in the event, there were many newer faces. Central figures from last year have become peripheral. Some who were less involved, including several who might not have identified as anarchists pre-Occupy, have been taking initiative and forming affinity groups.

Don't Die Wondering: Atlanta Against the Police Winter 2011-2012

The winter of 2011-12 saw a number of clashes with the police in Atlanta. Almost a year later, I’m comfortable enough to sit down to write about them. There were many other things going on around the country and even right here at home that made the following events possible, and I couldn’t feasibly account for all of them here with my limited perspective. The anti-police actions in themselves were not very significant, if gauged by the limiting discourse of “effective direct action” or “community organizing.” The cops still murder people, many people still have terrible ideas of how to respond. They were important, however, because they created a sense that something was occurring out of the ordinary. The excitement, the hope, and the anxiety created a whirlwind of emotions felt by dozens of people that evaporated as our sense of collective rebellion faded into nostalgia.

Atlanta: Report-Back from Actions Against Police and Prisons

at 8, we're walking down piedmont, following multiple groups of black-clad people on the sidewalk in front of us. we don't recognize any of them and we're laughing at the appearance of new friends. signs go up on the street poles: march against police violence, 8pm. arrows show the way.
a few minutes before the march, we were walking out of a medical hospital with as many surgical masks as we could carry.

OUTREACH

As Now, As Always, Fuck the Police

“Fuck the police!” We all scream the words as we walk amongst the stores.  “Yeah one more time, louder”---“FUCK THE POLICE”. We cackle with laughter, and yell again, “FUCK THE POLICE.” The whole mall is starting to notice, and the security guard starts following us. We belt it out a few more times, pass out leaflets, say goodbye to our briefly found friends, and dart out the door. We smile and begin to imagine the march, emboldened by all the words of support we hear.
