Stop Cop City
COP CITIES DO NOT BELONG IN AMERICA
The United States has seen a pattern of deeply disturbing tragedies over the last month.
On January 18th, a young man named Manuel Teran, called Tortuguita, was killed in Atlanta during a police raid on a group of environmental activists. The group was protesting the city’s razing of the 300 acre South River Forest in order to build a $90 million “Cop City.” A police officer was shot and wounded in the confrontation and authorities say Tortuguita shot first. They have provided no evidence that this is true, however, and others present at the time have questioned their version of events. No bodycam footage is available.
