WHEW! What a Winter. We made it! Most of us, anyways.
Now, with the onset of Spring and warmer weather, we’re switching gears a bit, no longer focusing on cold weather support, and creating more of a potluck atmosphere. So cook up something to share and c’mon down! Same time and location, 2-4PM every Sunday at Buckley Park (backup location: Iris Park). If you want, bring your own chairs, dishes, games & activities, and whatever else you think might be fun or helpful. We encourage the do-it-yourself ethic!

The Weelaunee Defense Society is calling for solidarity events and actions to honor Tortuguita’s birthday. Tortuguita was a Stop Cop City activist who was murdered by the police in the Weelaunee Forest on January 18th.
April 21: Organize a protest against Scottsdale Insurance and Nationwide – the insurance providers to the Atlanta Police Foundation and the construction of Cop City. Without this insurance, construction cannot continue. You can find Nationwide offices here and here.
April 22: Join Earth Day events with a Stop Cop City banner and table with movement materials. Share about the domestic terrorism charges and the necessity of solidarity. Talk to people and share photos of the events with the #StopCopCity hashtag.
April 23: Organize celebrations of Tortuguita’s birthday, life, and commitments. As Tort’s mother, Belkis Teran said, “The Weelaunee Forest gave them peace. They meditated there.” Draw on that peace and sense of connection to complete together the promise to Stop Cop City. Tortuguita was committed to mutual aid in Weelaunee and beyond, so join and launch mutual aid initiatives to honor and extend their memory.
