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.
Leaflets passed out during the event explained that the city of Atlanta, and the federal government more broadly, is pushing through austerity programs that are pulling the rug out from under the schools, public transportation, libraries, clincs, art programs, housing, and hospitals. The financial markets can right themselves by borrowing more money and adjusting their formulas. But we are left to deal with their damage.
The meager offerings from the government are being pulled away from us. The stock markets have soared back to pre-crash levels and yet almost every week we are hit with new cuts.
THIS MARCH HAPPENED IN SOLIDARITY WITH GENERAL STRIKES AND RIOTS IN GREECE, ITALY, SPAIN, PORTUGAL, CYPRUS, BELGIUM AND FRANCE TODAY.
This event is the first of many to come and was intended to be relatively short. In any case, it was a success.
May this be another step toward a world of autonomous self-rule without bosses or borders.
SOLIDARITY WITH THE INDOMITABLE HEARTS!
Publishers note: this event occured in Little 5 Points as a part of a broader strategy of experimentation with the intention of pushing terrain of struggle outside of the highly ritualized zones of conflict i.e. the Capital building and Peachtree Street.
