ATL Solidarity with Ft. Lauderdale Food Not Bombs

Video

See video

To all the people in Ft. Lauderdale who are being jailed for sharing food with hungry people: we are with you.  To homeless people all over who are jailed for being poor: we are with you.  In Atlanta we have also been harassed and arrested for standing with homeless people and against greed and repression.  We will not stop, and we know you won't either.  When the law tries to break us, we break the law!

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.

AZ2 Tamika Mars – An Inspiring Addition to the Officer Ranks

Aviation Maintenance Administrationman Second Class (AZ2), Tamika Mars, is being commissioned as an Ensign in the US Navy Reserves on Saturday October 4th, 2014.  She will take her officer’s oath in the presence of her family and unit.  This may seem like a very ordinary – perhaps commonplace – event  to those who don’t know this sailor, but there is nothing ordinary about Tamika Mars.

AZ2 Mars enlisted nine years ago, and quickly distinguished herself amongst her peers.  Fellow sailors in her current unit, a Sixth Fleet exercise support unit, hold AZ2 Mars in universally high esteem. 

Chief Petty Officer, Jason Ford, the unit’s highest ranking enlisted sailor, has said of Mars that she is a “go to person for important, time sensitive projects.”  She embodies “honor, courage, and commitment” in everything she does. 

Atlanta March and Rally Against School Pushout - October 4

“The fact that our schools place thousands of kindergartners each year in out-of-school suspension is reason alone for comprehensive school discipline reform,” said Pamela Perkins Carn of Interfaith Children’s Movement. “At five years old, we're telling children that school is not for you--you don't belong here. It's counter-intuitive to building a quality education system because, with each suspension, children are much less likely to graduate high school. At ICM, we understand that every child is a learner. Every child deserves the best education we can possibly give.”

This year the Georgia Partners of the Dignity in Schools Campaign will host the 2nd Annual March and Rally Against School Pushout at the Casey University Avenue Site in the Pittsburgh community of Atlanta as part of the National Week of Action.
