Friday, August 26th appeared to be a typical Atlanta morning for general contractor Brasfield & Gorrie’s construction site located at 760 Ralph McGill Blvd NE. Another summer day of building on stolen Muskogee land. There were habitats to destroy, a boutique hotel/ retail/ office building to assemble, a “neighborhood” to be constructed for yuppie gentrifiers.
But when workers attempted to turn on their machines, they encountered problems. Four of their large destruction vehicles had been tampered with. Wires cut, locks glued shut, water valves and exhaust pipes clogged with foam, etc. And written in red paint across the glass walls was a clear message: STOP COP CITY. Some wondered, how could this be? The site undergoes 24 hour surveillance. Maybe they aren’t as invulnerable as they’d like you to think….
Brasfield & Gorrie will not be granted a peaceful morning until the contract is dropped and their colonial violence across both Atlanta and Turtle Island is halted.
