Poster: Anticuts Atlanta #1

Re-posted from a poster seen around the Little 5 Points neighborhood in Atlanta, GA:

What the Fuck Was That?!


On the night of November 14th, roughly 40 people flooded Moreland Avenue with boomboxes and drums behind a banner reading "AGAINST AUSTERITY."

The roving mob funneled through the shopping district chanting "A-ANTI-ANTICAPITALISTA!" over filthy dubstep before convering on the Little 5 Points Plaza. Despite the overwhelming presence of police and Department of Homeland Security, there were no arrests.


But Why?

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.

Stand With Public Education!

Date/Time: 
Sat, 09/29/2012 - 2:00pm - 4:00pm
Location: 
Georgia State Capitol
206 Washington Street Southwest
Atlanta, GA
United States
People all over Georgia are gathering to celebrate the victories of the Chicago Teacher's strike and apply the lessons learned to our own struggles for public education for all here in our state. Through Race to the Top, our K-12 teachers are no longer educators, they are average test scores, micromanaged to ensure to actual learning occurs in the classroom. Charters are privatizing public education and ensuring a two-tier system for our children, one with resources, the other with privation. The massive in
crease in student fees, teacher speed-ups and layoff at the university level only spread this agenda beyond K-12. And the ban on undocumented students in Georgia's top schools ensures the re-segregation of our schools.
Will we stand for it? NO!
What do we do? Follow the lead of the Chicago teachers who fought for their communities, their neighborhood schools, and won.

We would like to invite the whole community of Atlanta and the surrounding area to be in and phone off about why the police officer is not indicted. The crime was done and the officer wasn’t held accountable. They must hold the police officer accountable for his actions.

On Friday Aug. 24th, Please join us. Held and organized by Human Excellence Economic Development. Many speakers and law professionals will be attending. With special guest, Ariston Waiters family, and his one year old daughter who will march with us for justice for her father.

Occupy Atlanta's March on the Banks report back

Here's the unofficial report back from last night's march on the banks/federal reserve.

Let me start by saying that these bi-weekly marches/demonstrations are first and foremost intended to be a tool for outreach to the local community. They are not direct actions aimed at causing any real or substantial disruption of business. They are meant to remind locals that we ARE still here, and we ARE still pissed.

Second, I want to give some background on how these demonstrations have been planned:

Occupy Atlanta Run on the Banks March

On Tuesday, August 14th Occupy Atlanta will march to the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta to demand a moratorium on foreclosures and an end to Federal Reserve policy that serves private interests at the expense of the 99%. Along the way we will also stop at a number of banks to make our demands known. 

Occupy Atlanta.

Arrests at Anaheim Solidarity March

There have been at least 3 arrests at tonights march against police violence in solidarity with Anaheim rebels.


One person is charged with pedestrian obstruction of traffic and physical obstruction of an officer; we need $780 to get them out. There is reason to believe that this person might have suffered physical injury at the hands of the police.

The two other arrestees have not been booked yet but we suspect their charges will be less serious.


A fundraiser is underway but more funds may be needed soon. Please stay posted.


As a preliminary response, it should be clarified: the police cannot be provoked.

They tackled participants in what was essentially a roving dance party.

They are the enemy.

While we are worried and enraged about the repression of our loved ones here, we remember the repression in the Pacific-Northwest, in Chicago, in Italy, and elsewhere.
