guns 

Hello, are you a member of a marginalized group? Do you want to learn some gun basics? I’ll teach you if you want. Exchanges will be conducted via encrypted email only. If you live close enough, I’ll pay for some range time too. I am not an expert by any means but I know a fair deal and I think I am a good teacher.

Please note that this offer isn’t open to cis/het white men, and also that detractive direct action (i.e. violence) isn’t the only way to revolt against the forces of oppression.

Here’s a question for my fellow white folks and retail/service workers:

Are you nice to black kids you meet in public?

Even the ones who are “misbehaving”?

what it was like growing up in georgia’s 14th congressional district, now represented in the us congresss by noted nazi marjorie green 

it fucking sucked, what did you think?

i hated it there.

i think Oscar had some curious definitions of “governance” and other such terms but this is a model of society i’d feel more comfortable living in.

consensual and informed medicine is a human right! no more luxury bones!!

living for the really excellent critique of the dispossessed i’m seeing on the tl. great job all.

some folks still need to get it through their heads that fascists and fascism are not simply “evil,” they are an

existential

threat

to

our

species.

and maybe even all life on this planet.

they must be opposed at every opportunity and by any means necessary

to

preserve

life

on

earth.

good morning.

abolish the police.

and if they won't agree to it, they deserve whatever's coming to them.

Atlanta Community Press Collective press release on protestor killed in Weelaunee Forest 18jan23 

Today the police shot and killed a protester in Weelaunee Forest.

Dozens of heavily armed DeKalb Police, Atlanta Police and Georgia State police shut down Weelaunee People’s Park and nearby streets before entering the tree line with guns drawn and heavy machinery poised to continue forest destruction.

Police have repeatedly raided this public park, flattened community gardens and art installations, attacked protestors with chemical weapons and rubber bullets, and threatened lethal force. During past raids, police have consistently escalated violent tactics on peaceful people who were sitting in trees or walking through the public park. Since June 6, 2022, activists and community members fighting to Defend the Atlanta Forest and Stop Cop City have been demanding that officers stop bringing weapons into the forest after APD pointed their weapons at peaceful protestors.

The police and local news are working together to control the flow of information, leaving us with vague news reports that suggest the officer fired at the civilian in self-defense. We know they will say and do anything to prevent an Atlanta officer from being viewed as another Derek Chauvin, including witholding, distorting, or deleting evidence. Supporters of the movement are calling on legal observers and journalists to document the violent police tactics being used against protestors.

Since the fatal shooting, this morning’s operation has continued with Brasfield and Gorrie’s heavy machinery entering the forest and cops shooting pepper balls at people who remain in the park–as if nothing has happened. The loss of our lives remains meaningless to the police. Police killed a forest defender for loving this earth, for taking a stand against the ongoing destruction of the planet and its people. Indiscriminate police murder, unfettered police violence is exactly why people have, for two years, called for the Cop City project to be cancelled immediately. As politicians invest in cops, militarization and police budgets are only increasing. Meanwhile, police murders peaked in 2022: U.S. cops killed 100 people every month.

What is taking place is a classic example of tyrannical government overreach. The public has a right to defend its interests. We are advocates of a free and peaceful society built on cooperation and mutual understanding. The government is escalating this situation pointlessly.

Allow peace to return to our community.

Cancel the Cop City project. Return Intrenchment Creek Park to the public.

Drop the charges against protesters.

No one can bring our friend back to us. An innocent life has been taken and the machines continue.

Wherever you are, we invite you to come to Atlanta Friday, January 20 for a candlelight vigil to remember and grieve our lost friend. We will not go quietly into this dark night. RIP, with love and solidarity.

a georgia state trooper killed a civilian in the Weelaunee Forest earlier today, 18 january 2023. the media and officials are already spinning this as an attack on the cops, and escalating violence against forest defenders as i write.

i have ancestors both genetic and spiritual from across the british isles, and probably other parts of europe, and it is my sincere and heartfelt desire that not one more human being for the incomprehensible remainder of the infinite future has to deal with the nonsense of the english (or white people generally) ever again.
