Now this thread is less about deMayo and more about the true power players— the @CityofAtlanta & the @PATHFoundation Board of Directors/ major donors. Ultimately an NGO ED serves at the behest of the Board & they have the power to fire deMayo, meaning their influence is HUGE.

Hundreds of Atlantans spoke out against the proposed authorization of $33.5 million taxpayer dollars for the Atlanta Police Foundation to fund the construction of ‘Cop City’ during the public comment section at city council on Monday. Full story here:…
The public comment lasted 7+ hours and the nearly 300 community members who had the opportunity to speak were unanimous in their opposition to ‘Cop City’, which if built, would be an 85-acre urban warfare police training compound in the South River Forest in DeKalb County, GA.
The Atlanta Public Safety Training Center (‘Cop City’) will cost at least $90 million total, with most of the funding flowing from corporations such as Coca-Cola, Chick-fil-A, Cox Enterprises, UPS, Home Depot, Waffle House, Wells Fargo and more.

'Tortuguita Vive': A No-Compromise Movement Responds to Police Killing a Forest Defender in #Atlanta:

From its beginning, the #StopCopCity movement has been one of no compromise, with protesters vowing that "Cop City will never be built."
The state seems to be responding in kind, pushing forwards with the broadly unpopular plan to build the USA's largest police training facility, resorting to tactics up to and including lethal force against those opposed to the project:…
Community organizations involved in the ongoing campaign to defend the 'Atlanta Forest' & #StopCopCity say state prosecutors are planning on releasing indictments in the coming weeks charging them as a “criminal organization” under RICO statutes.…

It has been barely a week since Georgia law enforcement agencies murdered Tortuguita for protesting Cop City.

Today, Governor Brian Kemp declared a State of Emergency that authorizes him to call on as many as 1,000 National Guard troops to quell protests at any moment.
The true emergency, however, is that law enforcement agencies across the country are killing people every day. From #GeorgeFloyd in Minneapolis, #RayshardBrooks in Atlanta, #TyreNichols in Memphis, and of course, Tortuguita.
Kemp's declaration of a State of Emergency isn't about property damage at Saturday's protests at all. It's about police murdering #TyreNichols and Tortuguita within two weeks of each other. They're trying to instill fear in anyone who stands up against police brutality.

As left wing terrorism in #Atlanta is in the news lately, highlighting this case from 2020.

Richard Hunsinger was set to be sentenced last week, but the sentencing is now contested and was pushed back.

We can confirm @NDGAnews is pursuing a terrorism sentencing enhancement
Hunsinger pled to federal charges relating to his role in attacking a federal building in a Portland #antifa inspired riot with molotovs and nail bombs.

The guideline range is 21-27 years. Feds are only asking for 7, Hunsinger is asking house arrest and probation.
Gov's argument focuses on

-That the conduct involved or intended to promote the federal crime of terrorism

-That it was clearly planned action, he was in black bloc and came w/ firebombs

-That it was targeting gov employees

-With his background, he "should have known better"
