The Georgia Peace and Justice Coalition's “Right to Peace” walk was a 120 mile peace walk from Fort Benning in Columbus, Georgia, culminating with a rally at the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) in Atlanta. The walk drew attention to the link between the research and development of the next generation of killer autonomous drones by Georgia Tech, their partnership with the Maneuver Battle Lab at Fort Benning where Ga Tech conducts drone flight testing, and the training of Latin America regime’s police and military forces at Ft. Benning’s School of the Americas (SOA/WHINSEC) in the use of the tools and tactics of oppression.

This route was the preferred marching path for several years up until 2012.

killings by and of police

 

Last weeek an 11 year old boy was building a tree fort. Because he was sawing limbs from neighborhood trees, a neighbor called the police. The responding officers drew their guns and ordered him protstrate on the ground. Last month someone made a false call to police accusing a passing vehicle driver of firing a shotgun at them while driving by. He was pulled over. The officers screamed SHUT THE FUCK UP when he asked what was happening as he lay on the ground with their guns to his head. Last week someone reported a young man was seen on the Columbus State campus putting bullets in a gun. When he saw the police he ran and was shot in the back by police. Their report said he turned to face and “shots were fired”. A passive verb always hides something. And sure enough, the coroner's report said he was shot in the back. Twice.
