    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!

    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.

    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.

    “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.

    Power and authority without finesse are dangerous. That seems to be a problem with our police lately, all authority, no finesse. They may have gotten to this point because Israel has undertaken to provide training in anti-terrorism and drug interdiction to U.S. and specifically Georgia police officers. We can see how knowledgeable Israel is on these matters by the level of peace and tranquility that Israel enjoys. And now we are starting to look the same way.
    Carlos Ortiz and Cheryl Greathouse have both traveled to Israel for training and now between the two of them they have injected it into nearly all training offered to Georgia officers at GPSTC Forsyth, the main training academy in the state of Georgia.
    So what have we gained from this? A police force that is no finesse, just wack-a-mole. Just like Israel.

    In December of 2011, a young man was shot by police in his back yard. The man’s name was Ariston Waiters and he was only 19 years old. He also left behind an one year old daughter. This incident may seem unusual, as the violence was unprovoked. It should also be noted that the victim was unarmed, not accused of committing any crime, and the officer is still working for the department. Additionally, the 19 year old was on his belly with one hand cuffed. The shooting officer, Luther Lewis, was called to another home. Instead of investigating a crime, he shot an innocent young man at point blank range in his back yard. Officer Lucas was at the wrong house and murdered a young father.

    Over the past week and a half, the town of Ferguson, MO, has blossomed with resistance to the established system of white supremacy, and the forces of state and capitalist power that uphold this violent system with their gangs of armed henchmen, the police. The spark of this resistance was the murder of Mike Brown, an unarmed black teenager, by a white policeman. Brown, according to witnesses, was shot while holding his hands up, a universal symbol of surrender. In the midst of the uprising that followed Brown’s murder, another man, 25-year-old Kajieme Powell, was gunned down by St. Louis police for suspicion of having stolen two cans of soda.

    Earlier this week here in Berlin, we threw paving stones through the windows of an office of the Social Democratic Party of Germany. We attacked with comrade Luke O’Donovan in our thoughts. Like Luke, our humble action was motivated by a love of life and an active rejection of a resignation to death.

    In the early hours of August 14th, three police cruisers were smashed out at the Chapel Hill Police Department Headquarters in Chapel Hill, NC. A message was also painted on one of the cars, reading, "For Luke."

    This was done as a small gesture of solidarity with Luke O'Donovan, of Atlanta, GA, who was recently sentenced to two years in prison for defending himself against five homophobic attackers. We hope this brings a smile to his face.

    We also carried out this act in solidarity with the rioters and looters of Ferguson, MO, who, in the face of continued brutality by racist police, have inspired the world with their courageous resistance against the forces of state, capital, and white supremacy. May their insurrection spread.

    Both as small groups and entire neighborhoods, it is possible to fight back.

    On New Year’s Eve of 2013, Luke O’Donovan attended a house party in Reynoldstown, a neighborhood in Atlanta, Georgia. Luke was seen dancing with and kissing other men at the party. Later in the night he was insulted with homophobic slurs, and attacked by several people at one time while he struggled to escape the attack. Several witnesses have reported watching between 5 and 12 men ganging up on Luke and stomping on his head and body, evidently with the intent to kill him. Luke was called a faggot before and during the attack. Through the course of the attack, Luke and five others were stabbed. Luke was subsequently imprisoned and charged with five counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He spent two in a half weeks in jail without bond before being released under bond conditions that have drastically affected Luke’s life. None of the other individuals involved in the altercation were charged.

    Luke’s self-defense immunity hearing was held last Tuesday, July 1st. Unfortunately, the judge denied Luke immunity, so Luke’s case will continue to trial.

    A self-defense immunity hearing is an opportunity for the judge to decide that a defendant was acting in self-defense, and therefore that he or she can’t have charges brought against them. In the hearing, both the defense and the prosecution make their cases, and the judge (without a jury) makes a ruling. The burden of proof in these hearings is on the defense, unlike in a trial where the burden of proof is on the prosecution.

    The newsmedia, watchdogs of the nation, are no longer pursuing any topics concerning Dennis Marx. He is yesterday's news. Try as I might I can't get any answers to a major question I have. Story after story after story named him as a sovereign citizen. Says who? Seriously, says who? Normally you would know someone is a sovereigh citizen because they say so out loud and/or they leave a paper trail that characterizes them as such. There are no quotations, citations or facts to support naming him as a sovereign citizen.
    It makes a difference too, because according to MY research ... I actually DO a lot of research, unlike the news media ... sovereign citizens are designated by the fbi and splc as violent extremists. That's what set him up for such horrible treatment during what should have been a common drug raid.

    My name is Nigel, which may come from the latin word for dark. My name is British, but I am African. The continent is so large it could fit China, India, the U.S. and all of West and Eastern Europe within it and all I know is that I come from some place on this largest continent. The Europeans that kidnapped my ancestors apparently failed to keep the recipt. Although I can look at my facial features and skin tone to see that like 70-90% of African people living in the American empire, my captors' blood runs through my veins.

    You have read about the scandal about police officers lying about their online training. This story broke because of the City of Cumming catching a number of its officers cheating on their training. Cumming is where Marx shot up the courthouse because of what he considered wrong treatment by corrupt officers.

    By way of researching this topic, I looked up the online training division at gpstc. I discovered that the online division at gpstc is run by 2 people, one of whom is Cheryl Greathouse. Let me tell you what I remember from taking a 40 hour course run by Cheryl Greathouse.

    At a press conference in downtown Atlanta tomorrow at 10:30 AM, a group of concerned activists will unveil "The Atlanta Principles," a point by point, activist-created program for the CDC to utilize to significantly reduce the rate of HIV transmission in the U.S. That rate is currently 50K per year, and disproportionately affects young gay men, gay men of color, and trans* women.

    Since 1993, new cases of HIV among gay and bisexual men and transgender women have been on the rise. According to numerous local and national studies, they've spiked. In Atlanta, a recent study shows that 12% of young gay black men are getting HIV every year. Even in the CDC's own backyard, the HIV crisis continues to rage.

    Up until recently, preventing sexual transmission of HIV meant one thing: condoms. Today, there are three additional, proven means of HIV prevention:

    On Wednesday, May 28th, the Habersham County Sheriff's department performed what they call a 'no-knock' drug raid on a suspected drug dealers house after a "confidential informant" (aka- hired snitch) made one purchase of methamphetamine. 

    During the raid the SWAT team deployed an explosive 'flash grenade' into the home which landed in the crib of a 19-month old toddler, causing severe burns to his face and destroying one of his lungs.
    The raid produced no drugs, no weapons, and did not produce the suspect they were looking for. 
    The child is STILL at Grady Hospital in a medically induced coma and has only been given a 50% chance of survival.

    On May 29, 2014 in Atlanta, GA in the U.S.A., police raided a home and tossed a flash bang grenade into the play pen with a sleeping 19 month old child in it. The child still struggles for his life. There are the usual howls of police brutality and the usual official declarations justifying the deeds done by the police. These are all entirely moot. Because the point is, the whole War on Drugs with its insane brutality and overflowing prisons and bloody casualties has done nothing whatsoever to solve the problem of addiction in America. And that was supposed to be the point. If you have problems with addiction and drug abuse in your family, all the blood and the bullets and the dead cops and babies are of no help to you whatsoever. And they are certainly of no help to the dead cops and babies and their grieving families.
