Prison and detention hunger strikes across the nation

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.

Petition For HR 676 Single Payer Health Insurance Is Ready For You To Read

We need to stop debating about health insurance and push for single payer health insurance.  As of today there is a single payer health insurance bill in the Congress at Washington D.C.  but it has not passed either chamber of congress.

HR 676 would establish a single payer health insurance for everybody in the U.S. and HR 676 will have no private insurance companies, bills, premiums, co-pays or deductibles.  Yes it is paid for.

You can read the petition for HR 676 at the internet site titled  ( Healthcare-Now).  At this same internet site you can read the full text of the bill.

CITY OF ATLANTA GOVERNMENT CONCEALED OFFICER KENNETH THOMAS' 3 ILLEGAL ARRESTS

Video

See video

On February 14, 2013, the ACRB(Atlanta Citizen's Review Board) confirmed that I was falsely arrested on June 18, 2012 and July 4, 2012 by City of Atlanta Police officers Kenneth Thomas #4847 and Tyler Capps #6639, in addition to a false arrest occurring against Mr. Howard Wright III on July 4, 2012 by Officer Thomas. These conclusions by ACRB coincided with three City of Atlanta Municipal Court judge's decisions to dismiss the separate cases because the arrests were committed without Officer Thomas having probable cause to make the arrests, who'd also falsified the police reports to justify his illegal acts. Such acts by Officer Thomas constituted the commission of two counts of kidnapping, false imprisonment, false imprisonment under the color of law and violation of oath of office under O.C.G.A.

Free Market & future free Space in Reynoldstown!

RECLAIM!

Yesterday, on the 1st of March 2014,

we celebrated a 'Really Really Free Market' on 195 Flat Shoals Ave. in Reynoldstown.
This was the 1st and therefore opening event of a future Free Store at the location.

We made use of an unused building and we are happy to state that it has been a tremendous success.

A lot of people from the community got together, talked, shared, had a good time and we all have been amazed by the general display of solidarity. With no money involved many things were taken by people and will therefore be reused while others brought in all kinds of beautiful stuff that they did not need anymore!

If we can pull our resources together we'll hopefully be able to do this several times a week in the foreseeable future.

FOR NOW there is already a set date for the next 'Really, Really Free Market' at 195 Flat Shoals Ave.:
