This is part of a series on the 3rd Week of Action.
On May 11, 30-40 people visited the home of Keith Lanier Johnson Jr. at 1268 Gordon Combs Rd NW, Kennesaw GA 30152.
Keith is the Eastern Regional President of Brasfield & Gorrie (B&G). B&G are the current general contractor for the Atlanta Police Foundation’s Cop City project in southeast Atlanta.
Now that Keith is no longer busy on the board of the Mount Paran Christian School, it seems he is managing the $142,327 of fines levied against his employer for safety and wage theft violations. He is also overseeing the destruction of grave sites, the leveling of a vital tree canopy, and the militarization of the American police force. It is for these reasons that community members went to his home at 6am.
The low-barrier fencing did not seem to deter assembled protesters from approaching the home directly in order to deliver fliers to Jr. Neighbors did not seem overly concerned with the assembled group when they approached the four building estate set back from the road. Hopefully Carolyn Paige Woodruff Johnson, Sarah E. Johnson, or Keith the younger were not bothered too much by the blow-back resulting from the decisions of Keith’s employers.
We hope that Keith is able to convince the two Magnus’s, currently sitting comfortably back home in Birmingham, that the current APF contract is untenable, and that there is an urgent need to cancel it. It could turn out that Keith personally is carrying to brunt of pressure for his bosses decisions.
Brasfield & Gorrie will eventually drop the Cop City contract. Anonymous groups are developing new methods for disincentivizing the project.
And they are getting closer.
