Report back from solidarity rally in so-called Austin, Texas with the movement against Cop City in Atlanta. Originally published on Austin Autonomedia.
Greetings from central Texas. This Thursday a few forest freaks made their way over to the Atlas headquarters for a noise demo. Atlas is a billion dollar company whose subsidiary Long engineering has been building cop city.
We came with noise makers and banners expressing our affection for Atlas CEO Lonnie Joe Boyer and their other subsidiary Pavetex. A heavy police presence was waiting: a few thugs on the ground, some more thugs on the parking garage, and they even brought a drone out.
It looks some people over at Atlas might be getting a little nervous. We also noticed that Atlas took their company name off the office sign, comical, frankly.
